An autobiographical novel from Sybille Bedford
First US edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, 328pp
An autobiographical novel based on Sybille Bedford's highly unusual childhood, moving from a south-German Schloss full of animals and expensive wines to a nonconformist family in the North of England.
A good copy. The dustwrapper has light wear to the edges and the book is tanned slightly to the ffep where a newspaper clipping of Sybille Bedford's obituary has been loosely laid in. Otherwise, a good, solid copy.
