What Our Customers Say...

Il disprezzo, known in English as Contempt or A Ghost At Noon, was written by Italian novelist and journalist Alberto Moravia, and is here translated into English by Angus Davidson. The novel explores the film world of Rome, and the slow breakdown of a once happy marriage.
In the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, cloth is in smart condition, with some very faint marks to the boards and spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are clean but with offsetting to the end papers and spotting to the fore edge, affecting the occasional page.
