1 MacLaverty, Bernard The Anatomy School
London Jonathan Cape Limited 2001 0224062026 / 9780224062022 First Edition Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Very Good in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Blue endpapers. 355pps. First Printing. There are vague indications that this book had been re-glued at the hinges; it is, otherwise, as new: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has small touches of crinkling at the extremities; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page.

"Set in Belfast in the late 1960s, Bernard MacLaverty's new novel takes us into Martin Brennan's last semester of high school, when he finds old friendships tested and is forced to face the unknown. Before he can become an adult, Martin must unravel the sacred and contradictory mysteries of religion, science, and sex; he must learn the value of friendship; but most of all he must pass his exams -- at any cost. Celebrating the desire to speak and the need to say nothing, 'The Anatomy School' moves from the enforced silence of Martin's Catholic school retreat, through the hilarious tea-and-biscuits repartee of his eccentric elders, to the awkward wit and loose profanity of his two friends -- the charismatic Kavanagh and the subversive Blaise Foley."
