Howatch, Susan. GLITTERING IMAGES. London: Collins, 1987. First Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine and fresh priced dust jacket. Tipped onto the front free endpaper is a plain white label signed by the author: "For________with all best wishes, Susan Howatch." Signed copies of this author's works are thin on the ground; in this case, the recipient was graced with a neat white label to paste inside her book. The copy itself is pristine, another fortuitous situation as the black dust jacket is easily perishable and the book itself is thick and heavy which normally lends itself to greater wear. GLITTERING IMAGES is the first novel in the author's astonishing Starbridge series, a masterful and brilliant series of six books narrated by the Reverend Dr. Charles Ashworth, a Cambridge academic who undergoes a spiritual and nervous breakdown after being sent by the Archbishop of Canterbury to secretly investigate possible sexual transgressions in the household of the Bishop of Starbridge.
