Ice, Hardback Book

Ice Hardback

Part of the Peter Owen Cased Classics series


  • Information


In a land devastated by war, a nameless narrator pursues an elusive white-haired woman in the clutches of a government official known only as 'The Warden'.

Neither will giver her up, but a freak ecological apocalypse is indifferent to their rival claims.

As a terrifying wall of ice continues its incursion, freezing everything in its path, it seems that only the white-haired woman is truly resigned to the fate of the world.

Anna Kavan's Ice is today hailed as classic of science-fiction and a definitive work of the 'slipstream' genre.

As part of the new editions of the Peter Owen Cased Classics series, this special hardback edition carries a dust jacket with false die-cutting of a triangle, while printed on the cover board is the striking artwork of British contemporary artist Naomi Frears.
