Clean, tight, unmarked; age tanning; light edge wear to corners and spine extremes; name on ffep; a few small closed tears to dj; otherwise bright, unfaded; price of $2.10 on inside flap of dj; Green cloth covers with gilt titles; Alan Paton's second novel. The tragedy of a white man who for complicated reasons succumbs to the very temptations he might have been thought strong enough to resist. His down fall is recorded by his father's sister who watched the train of events, half foreseeing the disaster yet unable to prevent it, and now in anguish blames herself. Though the story could have had no other setting than South Africa, its application is universal, and certainly its poignancy does not depend on its geographical situation.
