THE FLOOD.

RANKIN, IAN

  • Edition: First edition
  • Quantity available: 1
Edinburgh: Polygon, [1986]., 1986. First edition. 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.
