About this Item: Granta Books, London, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Jacket by Conor Brady (illustrator). 1st Edition. First edition, first impression with full number line. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, WITHOUT DEDICATION, IN BLACK INK, ON TITLE PAGE. Some edge wear to top and bottom to jacket and spine, some spotting to back jacket, page fore edges and top and bottom of white Granta cloth boards, brown discolouration to bottom corners, slight lean. Not price clipped (£14.99), gift inscription to ffep, internally clean and tight, overall a good + copy. 250pp. This travel journal and memoir traces a personal journey to Antarctica. For over 30 years Jenny Diski (1947-2016), was content to leave the question as to whether her mother was alive or dead unanswered. Not knowing the fate of the violent woman she last saw shortly after her father's death in 1966 filled her with a sense of relief rather than of loss. Then, just as Diski is planning a trip to the dream world of ice, her own teenage daughter decides to investigate what had happened to her crazy, missing maternal grandmother. Diski's unexamined desire to travel to the whiteness of Antarctica becomes a more complicated journey than she expected as cabin 532 of the Russian crewed ship takes her further than just the world of icebergs. She also voyages back into the faded landscape and closed off world of her childhood, to her distraught mother, her conman of a father and a child called Jennifer. Her mother had taken Jennifer ice skating from the age of two, hoping for an ice princess as a daughter. What she got was something icier. Diski was a troubled teenager from a difficult, fractured home. Her parents were working class Jewish immigrants to London. Her father James Simmonds (born Israel Zimmerman), made his living on the black market and deserted the family when Jenny was aged six. This caused her mother Rene (born Rachel Rayner), to have a nervous breakdown, and Jenny was then put into foster care for a first time. Her father came back, but left forever when she was aged eleven. Diski spent much of her youth as a psychiatric patient. At the same time, she immersed herself deeply in the culture of the '60s, from the Aldermaston marches to the Grosvenor Square protests, from drugs to free love, from jazz to acid rock, and a flirtation with the ideas and methods of R. D. Laing. Taken into the London home of a school friend's mother, the novelist Doris Lessing (1919-2013), Diski resumed her education and by the start of the 1970s was training as a teacher and publishing her first novels. Sadly, she died of lung cancer in April 2016. Scarce signed. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 005992
