Some edgewear and cover creasing, skinned area on spine (price tag removed?) text block edges yellowed as is common with Virago editions. No spine creases; pages clean. ; With a new introduction by Anita Brookner, this is an unusual, complicated historical novel. It was the recipient of the JamesTait Black Memorial Prize in 1953. The prolific and successful writer Margaret Kennedy, writes of Miles Lufton, a self-made Regency politician with enormous personal gifts...and a disreputable alter-ego. The title is the name of his country house, perfect place of contentment but as elusive to Miles as it is memorable to the reader.
