FIRST EDITION, WITH AUTHORIAL INSCRIPTION. Trade paperback. Illustrated wrappers. Gently rubbed at joints and edges, creasing and a few faint marks to fore-edges. Inscribed by Tucker in black pen to title page: “To Liz from Eva/ Christmas 2009”. Else, clean and tight.
Tucker’s third novel, coming 40 years after Contact (1966) and Drowning (1969), draws on her early life and that of her maternal family, offering a vivid evocation of a German Jewish world destroyed through the rise of National Socialism. Tucker served for many years on the Writers in Prison Committee (WiPC) of English PEN and was especially vocal on behalf of the Nigerian writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa.
