Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description

Review

"Extraordinary and intriguing" (SADIE JONES author of The Outcast)

"The Pure Gold Baby is an unexpected gift from a great author. How do we treat the child who walks among us in a different way than most? In Margaret Drabble's hands the answer is with a depth of empathy few master. Fortunately for us, Drabble has spent a lifetime doing just that in exquisitely written prose" (ALICE SEBOLD author of The Lovely Bones)

"Moving and meditative" (MEG WOLITZER New Yorker)

"Superb ... a richly complex narrative voice achieves a choric magnificence hardly equalled in her earlier work" (Stevie Davies Independent)

"Involving and unexpectedly rich . . . a magnificent novel that confirms Drabble's status as a national treasure" (Daily Mail)

"Subtle . . . The cadences of the prose, the kind of language used, the words that are chosen, echo the passing of the years . . . absorbing" (Kirsty Gunn Financial Times)

"Its prose has an almost folkloric quality . . . Characters, plotlines and themes swirl and proliferate" (Alex Clark Observer)

"Drabble's intelligence and compassion make it a hugely rewarding read" (Mail on Sunday)

"A unique and profoundly stirring book" (Elizabeth Day Observer)

"Written with compassion and bathed in a poignant glow" (Stylist)

Book Description

Margaret Drabble returns with a powerful novel of unbreakable love, enduring friendships and a society changing forever
