Wide Sargasso Sea.
One of the BBC's '100 Novels that Shaped the World'.
Set against the lush backdrop of 1830s Jamaica, Jean Rhys's powerful, haunting masterpiece Wide Sargasso Sea was inspired by her fascination with the first Mrs Rochester, the mad wife in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.
'She took one of the works of genius of the nineteenth century and turned it inside-out to create one of the works of genius of the twentieth century' (Michele Roberts, The Times).
First edition, first impression. A near fine book example with minor fading to the spine, and minor browning to the text block. With the rare dustjacket in near-fine condition.
Published by Andre Deutsch, London, 1966.
