RANKIN, IAN
THE FLOOD.
Edinburgh: Polygon, [1986]. First edition. Signed by the author. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket. Mary Miller is an outcast, believed by some to have occult powers, and is the mother of a bastard son, Sandy. Years later, Mary finds herself caught up in a faltering affair with a local schoolteacher while Sandy falls in love with a strange homeless girl. As the action moves towards a tense and unexpected climax, both mother and son are forced to come to terms with the past, in the growing knowledge that their small dramas are being played out against a much larger canvas, a drama glimpsed only in symbols and flickering images of decay and regrowth, of fire and water - of the flood. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: BUCKINGHAM BOOKS, ABAA, ILAB, IOBA [GREENCASTLE, PA, U.S.A.]
