Title: Fragile
Description: London, Staples Press. 1951, First Edition. Hard Cover, 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. Gold title on red cloth boards which have a small mark to spine, gentle bumping to corner tips and no wear. Internally there is light foxing to closed edges else clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket has a small loss to spine centre, wear to edges, some tape repairs and marks to back and is not price clipped. Translated by E.W. Dickes and Francois Duchene. Madeleine Robert like so many of the post-war generation is faced with the task of building her life anew - a few clothes, the memory of the man she loved, her own scarred hands are her pathetic legacy; but with blind courage she struggles against overwhelming odds to recapture the happiness she once knew. In a world of sordid reality, of hectic gaiety, of black marketeers and ubiquitous American soldiery, Madeleine's story unfolds. B2B. Very Good/Good.
