Zetterling, Shadow of the Sun.

Zetterling, Mai. Shadow of the Sun. First Edition. London, Jonothan Cape, 1974. 20.5cm x 13.5cm. 160 pages. Original Hardcover with original, unclipped dustjacket. In protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

A successful journalist approaching middle age at last comes to terms with her love that has thrust her into a bad marriage and then stranded her in a strange city in elegant isolation. A mental patient baffles her doctors as she waits ecstatically for union with her soul's companion in another century. A store assistant with a double life finds it increasingly difficult to hide his freakish weekend antics from his adored mother, to whose meaningless domestic rituals he gives point. Two women, continents apart, merge into a single spirit: one is a middle-aged misfit resurrected from a wretched past; the other, a girl whose childhood obsession for her father has ripened into mutual desire. The real world they inhabit is detailed with marvellous sensual accuracy as are their strange, exotic visions. As 'Shadow of the Sun' lights up other ways of living, other kinds of sight, so it lays bare the fictions on which so many relationships rely. it is the work of a truly original imagination.
