*Compare with Pat Barker for profound realism and sympathy with the dispossessed. *(LITERARY REVIEW equates her with Barker saying: 'Livi Michael has her own unqiue vision: she can see in the darkness') *Aim at: female audience, especially those not traditionally associated with literary titles. (Think: contemporary, upmarket saga. ) *(Michael) layers beauty and ugliness in random, honest ways. . . What more can we ask for in our fiction writers than such honest, such fierceness?' - INDEPENDENT.About the Author:

Book Description Secker & Warburg, 1996. Soft cover. Condition: As New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Published by Secker & Warburg (London) in 1996, this is a signed first edition paperback original with French Flaps (no hardback issued) in ‘as new’ condition. The book has been flat signed on the title page by Miss Michael. It is without fault or blemish. It comes from the unsold stock of a high street retail shop. As such it has not seen the light of day until now. The third novel from this multi award winning author and the winner itself of the Mind Book of the Year Award. A gripping work telling of a renewed relationship, contrary approaches and the battle to place mind over matter. It is powerful and intense reading. Not without humour but essentially a drains up examination of human values and their effect upon a relationship. Miss Michael’s penultimate work for adults before embarking upon a career as a children’s writer. A very difficult book to find in this condition and signed; great value for the fan or collector.
