Godden, Rumer - The Greengage Summer - ( Item 118630 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2000. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Illustrated by Aafke Brouwer. With a foreword by Jane Murray Flutter, introduction by Jane Asher. The faded elegance of Les Oeillets, with its bullet-scarred staircase and serene garden bounded by high walls; Eliot, the charming Englishman who became the children's guardian while their mother lay ill in hospital; sophisticated Mademoiselle Zizi, hotel patronne, and Eliot's devoted lover; 16 year old Joss, the oldest Grey girl, suddenly, achingly beautiful. And the Marne river flowing silent and slow beyond them all . They would merge together in a gold-green summer of discovery, until the fruit rotted on the trees and cold seeped into their bones . "The Greengage Summer" is Rumer Godden's tense, evocative portrait of love and deceit in the Champagne country of the Marne - which became a memorable film starring Kenneth More and Susannah York.
