Long Distance

Long Distance by Penelope Mortimer.  1974, Allen Lane, first edition, 239 pages. According to a NYT review at the time "Her protagonist goes through life in a trance that sets the reader nodding. [...] In giving an account of “Long Distance” I am aware that I have made it sound not only bizarre but also impossible. So it is."

Condition:VG/VG. Sunning to jacket spine, browning inside flaps, spine square, pages clean.

"What I do notice is the silence, as Mrs April briefly waits for me to be impressed."
