Time to Live is a novel written round the arrangements for a London street party on VE Day. Told with verve and gaiety and is an endearing story painting a vivid and shrewdly observed picture of an English community.
The book is in good condition, with some spotted foxing to the pages edges and tanning to the text. The dustwrapper suffers loss along the top edge, and is scuffed (both to wrapper an cloth) at the base of the spine but remains a nice signed readable copy.
