Description:
London England: Chatto & Windus, 1980. Hardback First Edition A Gentle Occupation. Prev owners name inside Very slight shelf wear to D/J. On an island off Java, in the uneasy aftermath of war, a group of ordinary, civilised people face the legacy of hatred and corruption left by the Japanese occupation. With sudden and violent death ever present, they seize their moments of happiness and try above all else to stay alive until the opporunity for release arrives.

Men and women, soldiers and civilians, Europeans and Asians - Dirk Bogarde brings each of them alive through his marvellously witty dialogue and penetrating sense of character. 360 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and… Read more
