The Fatal Englishman

£24.99

Product description

In a departure from the author's well-known fiction-writing, here are the biographies of three extraordinary Englishmen, beautifully researched and written to inform and inspire the reader. Their lives take us through the 20th century via the art scene in Paris in the 1920s (Christopher Wood), air combat in World War II (Richard Hillary), and the secretive aspects of the Cold War (Jeremy Wolfenden).

Sebastian Faulks (b.1953) is a British novelist, journalist and broadcaster, best known for his historical novels set in France ("The Girl at the Lion d'Or", "Birdsong" and "Charlotte Gray"). He has also published novels with a contemporary setting, most recently "A Week in December" (2009), a James Bond continuation novel, "Devil May Care" (2008), and a continuation of P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves series, "Jeeves and the Wedding Bells" (2013). He is a team captain on BBC Radio 4 literary quiz 'The Write Stuff'.

Our copy of the book is in excellent condition, in an unclipped and undamaged dust-jacket. It is bound in black cloth with gilt titles etc on the spine, and shows no signs of wear or use, external or internal. The binding is tight, and all pages clean and bright. The long edge of the text block is very slightly deformed, but there are no signs of damage by liquid, and this may be an effect of a cold environment. The author's signature is on the title page.
