He told her quite frankly, in that first real conversation they had together on the little secluded bench in theS outh London park about all the morbid sufferings of his years in America and his final mental collapse. He even indicated to her while the sound of grassmowing came to them over the rain-wet tulips some of the most secret causes of this event; his savage reaction, for instance, against the circle he was thrown into there; his unhappy habit of deadly introspection; his aching nostalgia for things less murderously new and raw. He explained how his mental illness had taken so dangerous, so unlooked for a shape, that it was only by the merest chance he had escaped long incarceration. No; it was not that he concealed anything. It was rather that she experienced a remote uneasy feeling that, say what he might, and in a certain sense he said too much rather than too little she did not really understand him.

Book Description Macdonald, London, 1974. First published in the USA IN 1916 by G Arnold Shaw. First published in Great Britain by Macdonald in 1973. This is a second impression, 1974. Hardback. 460p. Green cloth boards. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. 'Rodmoor' is a novel of fate, a strange and elemental creation of a type as rare as it is fascinating. Later in his career John Cowper Powys was to outgrow its particular view of human nature, to achieve work of greater scope and complexity. yet in isolating the strands of that web of circumstances within which a single life is lived and in tracing the inexorable advance of that life towards the fulfilment of a tragic destiny, this novel is like no other that he produced. Book in very good condition. Faint mark to upper board. Dust jacket in good condition. Unclipped. A little edge wear and some soiling. Spine faded. Internal surfaces of the jacket have some writing by (presumably) a previous owner that suggest the jacket spent a period of time reversed to protect the outer printed faces.
