Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 195pp

A day, crucial and cathartic, in the life of a young Catholic schoolteacher who has returned to Ireland after a year's sabbatical in London where he married an American divorcee. As a result he now faces certain dismissal by the school authorities. Moving from the earliest memories of both the man and the woman, the novel recreates their breaking of the shackles of guilt and duty into the acceptance of a fulfilling adult love.

The book is in good condition with some tanning to the pages. The dustwrapper is lightly creased to the edges but is now within a protective sleeve. This is a review copy with Faber's review slip loosely inserted.
