Description:
New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1977. Second Printing Sept. 1977. John Hersey, a Pulitzer Prize winner, has created a taut, dazzling novel of suspense and revelation - in which we watch mesmerized, the fateful convergence of two lives. A young woman comes alone to a strange city, anxiously waiting for something new and important to begin and a man - breezy, ponytailed, beautiful - stranded by the passing of the sixties whose excitements had nurtured and consumed him, now lavishes his whole self on loving craftmanship, on the construction of simple, perfect doors, on the mystery of locks, and on the artful offering of security (his locks and doors) to women who are alone.... The meeting of the two, and their love affair - its choreography master minded by one, unsuspected by the other - are hypnotically told in a novel that illuminates the fearful and fear-makers in our decade. Beige linen cloth boards - gilt title to spine. Turquoise top edge. An extremely bright book in a price-clipped illustrated dust… Read more

Description:
London: Hamish Hamilton, 1983. In this stirring account of the last 750 days of World War Two, Richard Collier's underlying theme is essentially the chaos imposed on Europe by President D. Roosevelt's obsession that Russia should become a partner in a post-war Grande Alliance, a belief that led to permanent enslavement of over one hundred million people behind the 'iron curtain' that Churchill forsaw; a war that only Josef Stalin, with Allied complicity, was to win. The contents provide a list of illustrations (a section of b/w photographs on heavier semi-gloss stock). One cartoon by David Low. The main content is followed by acknowledgements, source apparatus and index. Text shows edge-toning. Boards and endpapers remain bright. No names or inscriptions. Price-intact dust jacket with full wrap-around war scene. Jacket artwork by Brian Knight. A sound, most serviceable copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
