1982 The Falklands, and a Death Foretold
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, Very Scarce
A scarce first edition.
An essay by John Fowles, reprinted from Volume XXXVI Number 4 of 'The Georgia Review' for Winter 1982.
The author's own copy, with his blind stamp to the head of the title page.
'The Falklands' explores Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novella 'Chronicle of a Death Foretold'. Whilst reviewing Marquez's novel, Fowles also explores the causes and morals of the Falklands War.
Naturally Fowles does not take a positive point of view of the War, believing that the conflict was another example of humanity making itself a victim of its own stupidity.
In the original publisher's paper wraps. Externally, fine. Blind stamp to the head of the title page. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
