Lovely condition. This is very close to 'as new' if not 'as new'

Hesperus Press specialise in publishing out of print or some of the less famous works of great writers.

Due to the cover folding in (like a dust jacket does on a hardback), this does not feel like a standard soft cover edition. It is a beautiful softcover quality paperback edition.

About the Book.
Giulio Accurzi, a man of intelligence and property, has a somewhat unusual trait – a penchant for falling in love with his tenants. For him simply an entertaining diversion, this innocent game soon takes on an altogether more destructive nature.

'The Wave', the lead story in this remarkable collection of sterile, frozen love, chillingly introduces the dual themes of frustration and bitterness that preoccupy Pirandello's other tales: in ‘The Signorina', a woman, deeply disillusioned with her suitor's inability to express his feelings, makes a rash decision that will only lead to greater despondency; and in ‘A Friend to the Wives', a society lady recreates herself into the ideal of womanhood, but so much so that she finds herself unattainable.

Rigid, psychological and deeply bitter, Pirandello's three short stories tell of the sorrow of unfulfilled, untold love.
