Any Old Iron by Anthony Burgess


2nd printing. 

Nice reading copy.  Dust jacket has some heavy shelf / rub wear; but looks very nice in a new protective Brodart jacket protector.

Book itself reads nicely; light wear.  Mild toning to pages. 

When Welshman David Jones sailed off on the Titanic in 1912, little did he know what lay ahead: a lifetime of war and peace, progeny, fascism, terrorism, the birth of Israel and the discovery of an ancient Celtic treasure. Forty years later, his sons, daughters and beautiful wife would be scattered from Leningrad to Jerusalem, pursuing dreams and fleeing from demons, living through the bloody comedy of the Twentieth Century.

In a novel that captures the essence of love, battle, politics, literature, language and the spirit of mankind under siege, Anthony Burgess has spun a rich, bawdy and darkly comic tapestry for the ages — a master’s masterwork.
