A long-married couple setting off for a holiday in France have separate thoughts about their life together, the wife brooding "over her long-standing and undiscovered affair with the painter, John Ledcombe, and her now seemingly disintegrated life, with past inadequacies and future emptiness," while the husband "is haunted by certain places (the Isle of wight where he was brought up, the West of Scotland which has become a paradise of escape) as he is by a sense of guilt and failure, by the frustrations of his love both for the Army as it used to be and for Christina as she might have been, and by the bondages of relationship whether with his war victims or his family." Black cloth w/gilt spine lettering, 255 pages, wraparound dust jacket illustration by David Knight. Moderate general wear, and no previous owner's owners marks or notations, in price-clipped dust jacket w/a bit of wear to spine ends, light rubbing, minor impressions.
