Great Britain, Weidenfeld and Nicolson. (1977). Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near fine, with slight folds in the front and back flap.
Joan Didion's third book of fiction. "She is one of the very few writers of our time who approaches her terrible subject with absolute seriousness, with fear and humility and awe. Her powerful irony is often sorrowful rather than clever; the language of “A Book of Common Prayer,” like that of “Play It as It Lays,” is spare, sardonic, elliptical, understated." 272pp.
