The Stone Gods

£15.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hardback First Edition published in 2007 by Hamish Hamilton. Signed by author on title page. Unclipped illustrated dust jacket predominantly blue with very slight wear to the extremities. Blue cloth covered boards with silver title on spine. Spine bumped top and bottom. Tightly bound and clean with no inscriptions.

This new world weighs a yatto-gram. On the airwaves, all the talk is of the new blue planet - pristine and habitable, like our own 65 million years ago, before we took it to the edge of destruction. And off the air, Billie and Spike are falling in love. What will happen when their story combines with the world's story, as they whirl towards Planet Blue, into the future? Will they - and we - ever find a safe landing place? An interplanetary love story - of Billie and Spike, of the past and the future; a traveller's tale; a hymn to the beauty of the world: The Stone Gods is Jeanette Winterson at her brilliant best. Playful, passionate, polemical, and frequently very funny, this is a novel which will change forever the stories we tell about the earth, about love and about stories themselves.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
