1 Miller David Today - UK HB Signed, lined and dated
Atlantic Books 2011 184887605X / 9781848876057 1st Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book Signed by Author(s)
1st edition, 1st printing UK HB. Signed, lined and dated by the author. Rave reviews. One of Waterstones Best 11 top debut novels 2011. 'August 1924. John Conrad arrives at his parents' home on the outskirts of Canterbury, where family and friends are assembling for the bank holiday weekend. His crippled mother has been discharged from a nursing home, his brother drives down from London with wife and child. But as the guests converge, John's father dies. Today follows the numb implications of sudden death: the surprise, the shock, the deep fissures in a family exposed through grief. But there is also laughter, fraud and theft; the continuation of life, all viewed through the eyes of Lilian Hallowes - John's father's secretary - never quite at the center of things but always observing, the still point in a turning world. Today is a remarkable debut, an investigation of bereavement, family and Englishness, beautiful in its understatement and profound in its psychological acuity.' One to watch for 2011. Packed with great care.
