The Love Siege - Signed

£20.00

Product description

Signed and dated by the author (please see photo ). Previous owner's bookplate pasted inside front cover, and some foxing to end pages (please photos ).
"Concerned with the patterns of friendship, kinship, love and passion, The Love Siege continues an exploration begun in Tom Wakefield's earlier novels, Trixie Trash, Star Ascending and Isobel Quirk in Orbit.
Set in the not too distant future, it presents us with characters familiar from the previous books and shows us both heroines, Margaret and Isobel, in maturity. They find themselves persecuted by the prevailing Government of National Unity and Conformity and, faced by a dilemma of nightmarish proportions, they become involved in a siege of a most unusual and forceful kind.
Tom Wakefield's eye for the bizarre and incongruous creates a powerful and haunting narrative in which strange and savage circumstances not only shape the destinies of his main characters but affect those of many others as well. With its qualities of wit and pathos, its excitement and humour, The Love Siege makes compulsive reading."
