Published by Jonathan Cape, London; 1990. First Edition, First Impression. Condition: Fine/Fine.
A very smart example of this modern first edition by popular author, Ian McEwan. Bound in original blue boards with gilt title to the spine, the binding is in excellent condition with no issues to speak of. Inside, the book is in equally smart condition, with clean bright pages free from blemishes and wear.
The book is housed in a smart, bright and unclipped dust jacket, and other than a small scuff mark to the rear, it is clean and free from damage.
This novel is an intelligent and surprising journey into espionage during the cold war. It is a departure from McEwan's typical novels and is an outstanding introduction into this author's genius. A must have for all literary lovers.
