Why We Love This

Empire of The Sun by J. G. Ballard. London: Victor Gollancz, 1984. First UK edition. True first printing, a fine copy in first state dust jacket with only two comments on the rear panel, by Graham Greene and Angela Carter, rather than six. A monumental war story, highly effective in the bluntness with which man's brutality is so casually described, through the eyes of a child. Made into a powerful film by Stephen Spielberg. Hardcover, with slight age tanning to pages.
