Aged toning of the page edges, traces of offset tanning to both front and rear end pages, slight rubbing of the edges of the dust jacket, which also has a 2.0 inch neat tear at the upper right-hand corner of the rear panel. A sophisticated Australian-born actor, Alec Ritchie, returns to Sydney to make a film after 10 years at Stratford and the Old Vic. His revulsion against his homeland sets a dilemma for his wife, torn by her loyalty to Australia on the one hand and her obligation to their crumbling marriage on the other. Besides the tension between husband and wife, there is conflict between the old country and the new, between the affected angler files, the sophisticated Australians who think that all that is best comes from the old country, and the genuine Australians, suffering considerably from "national inferiority nonsense".
