Toronto: Chatto & Windus, 1946. Interesting novel set in Albania in the 1930's. Ann Bridge has written a number of novels set in interesting locations, which she knew well as the wife of a diplomat and which she describes well. Although the social ambiance of her early works (1930's) may reflect the attitudes of that time, those set in later periods display characters with an appalling assumption of social superiority and of patronising condescension that seems totally inappropriate in the modern world, and which make the stories seem rather too dated in style.Hardcover. V.Good/.Good ( dj price clipped, slight chips and tears). 1st Can Ed. Cloth. Very Good/Good with slight chips & Tear.
