About this title:

Synopsis: "Smuggling the most up-to-the-minute contraband in antiquated charabancs-that's what I like doing," Gombrowicz said of his work and in this later day Gothic novel he uses all the traditional paraphernalia of haunted castles, mad prince, and riddle from the past to tell the very modern story of two young people caught up in a drama of shifting identities.

Book Description Marion Boyars, London . Boston, 1980. Softcover (Illustrated). Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. a note on the English version by J. A Underwood, translator. Illustrated card cover with black coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. " 'Smuggling the most up-to-the-minute contraband in antiquated charabancs - that's what I like doing,' Gombrowicz said of his work, and in this latter-date Gothic novel. He uses all the traditional paraphernalia of haunted castle, mad prince, and riddle from the past to tell a very modern story of two young people caught up in a drama of shifting identities. The atmosphere of decaying aristocracy and declining gentry in which the novel is set is a match that of Gombrowicz's own childhood in Poland, while the themes explored - the seductiveness of immaturity, and the relation between evil and personal awareness - are those with which all his work are consistently concerned." -- from the rear panel blurb. Creasing to the book corners and to the top right-hand corner of the front panel. Chipping to the head and to the heel of the backstrip and to the rear spine edge and top edge of the backstrip. Fading to the backstrip. This is the first edition in the English language. Size: Trade Paperback. (4), 5-221, (3) pages, Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
