Product description

Jennet Mallow is born in Yorkshire in the 1920s but her interest in art and creativity alienates her from her family, her father who is a priest, her conventional sister and her emotionally stunted mother.

When Jennet falls pregnant, her parents more or less force the two to marry.
Written in the form of a biography, An Equal Stillness is an outstanding debut, breathtaking in the poise and beauty of its language and craft.

Hardback boards with slight lean with bottom and top edge of spine bumped.

DW in near fine condition with creasing top and bottom edge.

Size 6"x9"
