Description

A beautiful gift edition of a Anna Kavan's feminist sci-fi classic novel, features a die-cut dust jacket over contemporary art.In a land devastated by war, a nameless narrator pursues an elusive white-haired woman in the clutches of a government official known only as 'The Warden'. Neither will giver her up, but a freak ecological apocalypse is indifferent to their rival claims. As a terrifying wall of ice continues its incursion, freezing everything in its path, it seems that only the white-haired woman is truly resigned to the fate of the world.Anna Kavan's Ice is today hailed as classic of science-fiction and a definitive work of the 'slipstream' genre. As part of the Peter Owen Cased Classics series, this special hardback edition is bound with printed endpapers, head and tail bands and a ribbon marker. The elegant dust jacket features a die cutting of a triangle, while printed on the cover board is the striking artwork of British contemporary artist Naomi Frears. 'Ice is her best novel: a sustained and extended metaphor for the descent into, and traverse of, the ice-laden world of the addict ... a marvel of descriptive, chilling writing, rich in action and introspection.' - Christopher Priest
