Staring at the Sun

Barnes, Julian


1st Edition

Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Faint brown stain to top-edge of text block. In near fine dust jacket, with some rubbing to edges and browning to edges of flaps. *** A very nice first printing of Barnes’s fourth novel, about the life of Jean Serjeant, “from her beginning as a naive, carefree country girl before the war through to her wry and trenchant old age in the year 2020” (which was more then a decade in the future when Barnes published the novel).
