MISS GARNET'S ANGEL.
Edition: First printing.
London: Harper Collins, (2000) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first novel - one which defies categorization - it is a historical mystery, a love story, and a retelling of The Book of Tobit, from the Apocrypha. "What begins as a beautifully-written, gentle tale of a woman coming to life, slowly deepens into something more intriguing as Vickers takes up issues of good and evil, sexuality, religion and belief. Just as one can happily wander the streets of Venice until one finds oneself lost and fear sets in, the reader is lulled by her artful prose until ensnared." (Oxford Times) SIGNED on the title page. Map frontispiece and map endpapers. Author's note. 342 pp. ISBN: 0-002261154.
Condition: Very near fine in a fine dustjacket. (usual toning to the pages)
