Rhys, Jean
Good Morning, Midnight.
London: Andre Deutsch, 1967. First edition of the re-issue of this novel by the author of The Wide Sargasso Sea, which V.S. Naipaul called "the most subtle and complete of [Rhys'] novels, and the most humane." Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Jean Rhys on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. Jacket design by Barbara Brown. Often considered a continuation of Rhys' three other early novels, Quartet (1928), After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie (1931) and Voyage in the Dark (1934), it is experimental in design and deals with a woman's feelings of vulnerability, depression, loneliness and desperation during the years between the two World Wars. The book initially sold poorly--critics thought it well written, but too depressing--and after its publication Rhys spent a decade living in obscurity. It was not until it was adapted by Selma Vaz Dias into a radio play, first broadcast by the BBC in 1957, that Rhys was once again put into the spotlight. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
