Patrick White - The Twyborn Affair - Hardcover

A sample of the information from the books dust jacket:
First paragraph reads: "The wealthy, middle-aged Australian, Mrs E. Boyd Golson, victim of her social and sexual doubts, was stirred by the mere glimpse of the romantic Eudoxia, Empress/hetaira of the Byzantine exile, Angelos Vatatzes, as the couple idled in the unkempt garden of their cottage just beyond St Mayeul”

Last paragraph reads: “Developing in 1914, the revealing, disquieting narrative sweeps from French resort to a bleak corner of New South Wales, then to London streets and the apocalyptic blaze of the Second World War."

Publisher: Jonathan Cape Ltd,
First Edition Hardcover
432 pages The pages of this book are in perfect unread condition. The hardcover is also in excellent condition with original, brown cloth with gilt title at spine.
The dust jacket has gilt lettering and has protected the book well; a wee bit tired looking in places.
