Folio Society, London, 1994. Book condition: fine and with an unread feel.Original slipcase in very good condition. Peacock's seven novels, better called satires, are amogst the most pleasurable books in exisetence. Pleasure is their topic: ease, health, leisure, walking, company, talk & ideas. Much of the talk takes place at a table, accompanied by superb food and drink - pleasures enjoyed in real life by a man of classical tastes and a remarkable digestion. Though so much concerned with comedy, and so richly comic itself, Nightmare Abbey is even more emphatically and impression, and celebration, of cultural fregmentation, and of the modern media which live by the generation of controversy. Illustrated with the brilliant drawings and wood engravings by Peter Forster.
