"The Spring of 1977 found me, newly past thirty, a bad case of wasted talent in a largely waste city": First edition of Robert Goddard's Past Caring
Item Number: 92501
London : Robert Hale Limited, 1986.
First edition of Robert Goddard’s first novel. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Jacket design by Wendy Taylor.
With echoes of John Fowles' The Magus, the compelling narrative style and labyrinthine plot of Robert Goddard's first novel make it an extraordinary literary achievement. The story centers on Martin Radford, a disaffected and unemployed recent history graduate, and the bizarre and violent turn of events that forever change his fate and the fate of those closest to him.
