Printing Details

First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 192pp.

Warmly signed to the ffep, "for Martin & Gillian, with best wishes, Bill, Easter 1984"

An immature golden eagle is captured and brought to the London Zoo for showcase and display. Creggan begins to lose his sense of freedom, as the cage curls around himself, cutting off access to the sky. An older female eagle who's been trapped in the cages for a long time gives Creggan the strength to survive, and the hope of one day escaping this man-made construct.


A reading copy only, though a scarce title to find signed. The book has a heavy lean to the spine and the wrapper is bumped and pitted, with a small chip along the top edge. However, it remains perfectly readable.
