Clement Winter is an analyst and Oxford don; his wife, Sheila, is the author of the bestselling Kerinth fantasy novels.His older brother Joseph has died recently, leaving behind an assortment of letters and papers, through which Clement tries to make sense of Joseph's life. Born in the 1920's in a small Suffolk town and haunted from his childhood by his mother's apparent rejection of him, Joseph seizes eagerly on the war as a means of escape, serving with the Forgotten Army in Burma and, after the Japanese surrender, in Sumatra.His later life is footloose and dissatisfied. Clement and Sheila's lives, by contrast, seem calm and prosperous.But even as he tries to assimilate and understand his dead brother's life, unexpected upheavals bring forcibly to Clement's attention how little he understands his own. This major contemporary novel is the most profound and extraordinary work yet from the prolific and inventive Brian Aldiss.. UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.. Hardback.. FINE./FINE.. 8vo.., LONDON.GOLLANCZ,1988.
