Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------ISLAND IN THE SUN: A STORY OF THE 1950'S SET IN THE WEST INDIES by Alec Waugh. British colonialism on the decline and its effect on the inhabitants of a small West Indies paradise is the background for this tale of politics, forbidden love, murder, and redemption. As the sun sets on the British Empire the people of this tiny island, both white and black, begin to prepare for free elections and impending independence. In essence the island is a microsm---all the social and political issues of the time cook in the heat of the West Indian sun. This story is not without its fair share of melodrama, but it is extremely entertaining and offers the reader a social commentary on a way of life and a time that has forever passed. You are bidding on the only stated Farrar Edition from 1955. Other than a back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the cover and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. I gladly accept PayPal and as preferable forms of payment (no personal checks!). Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges.
