About this product
- DescriptionIn this haunting and surreal vel, the narrator and a man kwn as the warden search for an elusive girl in a frozen, seemingly post-nuclear, apocalyptic landscape. The country has been invaded and is being governed by a secret organisation. There is destruction everywhere; great walls of ice overrun the world. Together with the narrator, the reader is swept into a hallucinatory quest for this strange and fragile creature with albi hair. She is, we kw, Anna Kavan herself. Acclaimed by Brian Aldiss on its publication in 1967 as the best science fiction book of the year, this extraordinary and invative vel has subsequently been recognised as a major work of literature in its own right
- Author BiographyAnna Kavan was one of the greatest unsung enigmas in 20th-century British literature. Born Helen Ferguson, a fraught childhood and two failed marriages led her to change her name to that of one of her characters. Despite struggling with mental illness and heroin addiction for most of her life, she was still able to write fiction that was as powerful and memorable as any English female writer of the last 150 years.
