A Clue To The Exit
St Aubyn, Edward

 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. As New/. . 167 pages. Multiple copies of this title available. This book is an unread copy. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. Charlie Fairburn, successful screenwriter, ex-husband and absent father, has been given six months to live. He resolves to stake half his fortune on a couple of turns of the roulette wheel and, to his agent's disgust, to write a novel - about death. In the casino he meets his muse. Charlie grows as addicted to writing fiction as she is to gambling. His novel is set on a train and involves a group of characters (familiar to readers of St Aubyn's earlier work) who are locked in a debate about the nature of consciousness. As this train gets stuck at Didcot, and Charlie gets more passionately entangled with the dangerous Angelique, A Clue to the Exit comes to its startling climax. Quantity Available: 6.

A Lesson Before Dying

 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Good/. Reprint. 256 pages. Covers have light creasing. Corners of covers are moderately bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are reasonably tanned. Previous owner's name whited-out. A LESSON BEFORE DYING is set in a small Cajun community in the late 1940s. Jefferson, a young black man, is an unwitting party to a liquor store shootout in which three men are killed; the only survivor, he is convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Grant Wiggins, who left his hometown for university, has returned to the plantation school to teach. As he struggles with his decision whether to stay or escape to another state, his aunt and Jefferson's godmother persuade home to visit Jefferson in his cell and impart his learning and pride to Jefferson before his death. In the end, the two men forge a bond as they both come to understand the simple heroism of resisting - and defying - the expected. Ernest J. Gaines brings to this novel the same rich sense of place, the same deep understanding of the human psyche, and the same compassion for a people and their struggle that have informed his previous, highly praised works of fiction.

A Shadow On Summer
Brown, Christy
Secker & Warburg, UK, 1974. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Edition. 269 pages. Riley McCombe, a crippled Irish novelist, is on his first visit to the United States, guest of his British publisher's old friends, Laurie and Don Emerson. He is there to celebrate the American publication of his first novel, but more important, to complete in the peace and quiet of a small Connecticut seaside town, his second book. For that task, Laurie becomes his guide and mentor. This peace is disturbed by the young freelance photographer, Abbie Lang, hired by Riley's American publishers to take photographs at their celebration party. To Riley she is something sxciting and exotic; and Abbie falls in love. She takes him on a sight-seeing tour of New York, marvelously described, and then to her Greenwich Village studio where fruitlessly they spend the night together. For in the developing drama that emerges it becomes clear that though Abbie and Laurie both, in the their different ways, love him, Riley is incapable of response. He is a prisoner of his own ego, a man struggling at all costs for self-fulfillment through his writing, torture though his struggle may be. So he casts a shadow on the lives of both these mutually antagonistic women during the long New England summer. At the end, his book is finished, but will he ever write another? Abbie has been cast aside, but in a finely written chapter Laurie endeavors to give him hope. There may yet be a summer without shadows. In the end it must be up to him. Quantity Available: 1.

Alentejo Blue

 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. As New/. . 301 pages. Multiple copies of this title available. This book is an unread copy. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. "Alentejo Blue" is the story of the Portuguese village of Mamarrosa told through the lives of those who live there and those who are passing through - men and women, children and old people, locals, tourists and expatriates. For some, such as Teresa, a beautiful, dreamy village girl, it is a place from which to escape; for others - the dysfunctional Potts family - it is a way of running from trouble (but not eluding it). Vasco, a cafe owner who has never recovered from the death of his American wife, clings to a notion that his years in America make him superior to the other villagers. One English tourist makes Mamarrosa the subject of her fantasy of a new life, while for her compatriots, a young engaged couple, Mamarrosa is where their dreams finally fall apart. At the book's opening an old man reflects on his long and troubled life in this beautiful and seemingly tranquil setting, and anticipates the return of Marco Afonso Rodrigues, the prodigal son of the village and a symbol of this now fast-changing world. The homecoming is the subject of continuing speculation, and when Marco Afonso Rodrigues does finally appear, villagers, tourists and expatriates are brought together and jealousies, passions and disappointments must inevitably collide.

Two years ago, his young daughter died in an accident, and while he and his wife are learning to cope with the tragedy, it doesn't look as if they are going to make it. More and more Martin turns to the only other friend he's got: the Pillars of Wisdom poker machine - until it lets him down one time too many. Using what's left of a small inheritance, Martin travels to Fiji. A little time out from a life out of control is also an opportunity to research the story of a nineteenth-century treasure. From the realm of Sydney's poker machine parlours to the seedy bars and backstreets of Suva, Martin encounters conmen, criminals, drifters and dreamers. A young Fijian woman with troubles of her own provides heartache and hope - and the knowledge that life isn't always elsewhere. Quantity Available: 3.
