A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Minimal damage to the cover, including very minimal scuff marks, and some minor creasing, but no holes or tears. All pages are undamaged with no creasing or tearing, no pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. No missing pages. The book looks brand new between the covers.
"Peter Carey's novel of the undeclared love between clergyman Oscar Hopkins and the heiress Lucinda Leplastrier is both a moving and beautiful love story and a historical tour de force set in Victorian times. Made for each other, the two are gamblers - one obsessive, the other compulsive - incapable of winning at the game of love.
Oscar and Lucinda is now available as a Faber Modern Classics edition."
