Good Morning, Midnight [1st impression, 2nd edition]

£29.99

Product description

Described as 'unquestionably Jean Rhys's most remarkable novel', this tells of a 40-year old woman revisiting Paris between the two world wars, where, long before, love gave her happiness and then plunged her into disaster. Despite this distressing past, however, she finds herself developing a new relationship, which is subtly described and developed all the way to a tragic, disturbing, but very true conclusion. The book was adapted for the theatre in 1949, and as a BBC radio play in 1957, putting the author once again put into the spotlight.

Jean Rhys, CBE (1890–1979) was a mid-20th-century novelist who grew up on the Caribbean island of Dominica, and was then mainly resident in England, where she was sent for her education. She is best known for her novel "Wide Sargasso Sea" (1966), written as a prequel to Charlotte Brontë's "Jane Eyre", but "Good Morning, Midnight" (1939), was in fact her 4th novel, and is usually considered a sequel to the previous three - "Quartet" (1928), "After Leaving Mr Mackenzie" (1930) and "Voyage in the Dark" (1934).

Our book is in very nice condition, with an undamaged, unclipped dust jacket illustrated by Barbara Brown, with a period Parisian scene. The inner face of the jacket shows some brown marks (see photo). The book itself is bound in dark navy cloth with title etc. in gilt lettering on the spine, and shows no exterior signs of use or wear. The jacket flaps are quite foxed, as are the fore-edge and top edge of the textblock, and one or two of the earliest and last pages. Apart from these defects, however, the binding is firm, all pages clean and bright, and the book is in very nice condition.
