Silent Conversations: A Reader's Life (signed by Author)

£49.99

Product description

For Anthony Rudolf, reading is a profoundly serious and intense activity, as well as a major source of pleasure and solace. At the same time, it is always interrupted by day jobs, friendships, politics, and, paradoxically, by the act of writing. All of this comes together in "Silent Conversations: A Reader's Life", a canny and insightful memoir of Rudolf's life in books.

Hardback published in 2013, in good condition. Binding sound and pages all clean and unmarked. Black boards with title in gilt on spine. There is some slight bumping to bottom of spine and the corners of both the front and back covers are very slightly bent. The dustjacket is in good condition, there is some creasing to the top corners of both the front and back cover, some creasing along the top of the front cover, at the top and bottom of the spine and it is slightly worn at the bottom corner of the front cover.

Anthony Rudolf has signed the book on the title page 'For Stephanie Affectionately and Thank You, Aug 2013'.
