Item Description: Chapman & Hall, 1962. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good Plus. Dust Jacket Condition: Good Plus. Various (illustrator). 'Love Among the Ruins: A Romance of the Near Future is a 1953 novel by Evelyn Waugh. It is a satire set in a dystopian quasi-egalitarian Britain. The protagonist, Miles Plastic, is an orphan who at the beginning of the story is finishing a prison term for arson. Crime is treated very leniently by the state, and conditions in prison are actually quite superior to those among the population at large, leading to an understandably high recidivism rate. Upon release, Plastic goes to work at a state-run euthanasia center. The centers are not restricted to the terminally ill and are so popular that Plastic's sole responsibility is to stem "the too eager rush" of perfectly healthy but "welfare weary" citizens. Plastic soon falls in love with Clara, a bearded woman who is a "priority case" at the center. However, she does not wish to die (she was sent there by her department) and the two begin a romance. One day, however, she suddenly disappears, and when he finds her, she has a rubber jaw replacing her formerly bearded face. Distraught, Plastic sets his former prison on fire, and, unidentified as the perpetrator of the crime, becomes elevated in status as the prison's only "successfully rehabilitated inmate." Sent to become a lecturer on the worthiness of the prison system, Plastic is directed to marry an unattractive civil servant. A curtain is drawn on the final conclusion as Plastic reaches into his pocket for his cigarette lighter.' Red cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Gilt emblem to front board. Page tops have been coloured to complement the boards. Boards are generally in good order, just a some small ghost marks from tape. Slight bumping to corners. Board edges are a little rubbed. Spine is intact with just a little mild bumping to ends. Stain to page tops. Ghost of tape to the endpages. Front inner hinge is cracked, but holding. The binding is loose; the bundles are separating. Textblock is generally clean and well held. 50 pp. Contains the usual marks of an ex-library copy. Cream paper dust jacket with black and red lettering to spine and front. Dj is in a good condition albeit with some creasing to the edges. Ghost of tape to inner flap edges.
