A propos de cet article

Marbled blue paper-coverd boards with silver lettering and TW to front cover, black backstrip. Hint of edgewear, tips of corners show slight bump. Text is clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ shows minor edgewear, extremely mild general scuffing. "Told in fiery working-class colloquialisms, this is the story of Sam Pickles, who loses his fingers in an industrial mishap; of his wife Rose, who loathes her husband's weakness; of Lester and Oriel Lamb, 'God'-fearing' people who lose their faith, yet rebuild their shattered world; and their melancholy son, Quick, who dreams of the past and the future. Perhaps, most of all, it is the story of Fish Lamb, whose mind is damaged in a drowning accident, who is endowed with strange and wondrous powers, and who lives haunted by the image, the sound, and the smell of water." (from the jacket). N° de réf. du libraire A112213
