1 Ackroyd, PeterFirst Light. 00262
Hamish Hamilton: London. 1989.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Weird novel: ''fans of the macabre will relish its exhilarating combination of cosmic awe, ancient beings, and creepy underground tunnels''.

'FIRST LIGHT (1989) 'is not the darkest of Peter Ackroyd's novels (Hawksmoor has that honor), but fans of the macabre will relish its exhilarating combination of cosmic awe, ancient beings, and creepy underground tunnels, in a humorous suspense story as cleverly paced as a Hitchcock thriller. The story is that the excavation of a neolithic, astronomically aligned grave under the pastoral hills of Dorset, England, coincides with the startling reappearance of ancient stars (including H. P. Lovecraft's Aldebaran) in the night sky. A group of deliciously eccentric characters - archaeologists, astronomers, a stuffy civil servant, a stand-up comic, and vaguely menacing local villagers - converge at the site and collide with each other''.


Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new).

Price: 15.00 GBP
