[moderate overall wear to book, slight fraying of cloth in a few spots; jacket worn at edges/corners, a few small edge tears, chipping at spine extremities]. "A brilliant, subtle study of the growth of character in a group of people living in England in the middle thirties." The jacket blurb optimistically states this to be "the work of a finished and mature writer, so much so that comparison with E.M. Forster and Henry James is not in the least extravagant." (Really. Not in the least. Hm. The Kirkus review of Pember's next -- and apparently final -- novel closes with this observation: "Fate and futility direct this progression to its inevitable end, enclose this story in monotone." Perhaps an epitaph for the author's career.)
