Spine and cover creases, page edges (with black remainder mark on bottom) yellowed as is common with Virago editions, a bit of edgewear; interior pages clean, none loose.; This edition has a new introduction by Elizabeth Jane Howard. Like all of her fiction, Elizabeth Taylor writes beautifully, with irony as light as feather and characterization without flaw. This is a story of first love, settling for second best, and returning to the first. Recommended.; "I know it has often been the case that every new (to me) book by Elizabeth Taylor I read becomes the 'best' one I have read so far, but this time, honestly, I think I might really mean it."- Lynne H. author of the 'dovegrey reader scribbles' blog. 'Taylor has a wickedly funny sense of humour and a magnificent talent for capturing the absurd, both of which remind us of the joy and pleasure to be found amidst the realities of navigating our path through life. Of all the novels of hers I have read, which is a fair few now, I think A Game of Hide and Seek is her finest.' -Rachel, author of the "Book Snob" blog. Image is actual copy on offer.
