The Kindness of Women by J.G. Ballard
FIRST EDITION  FARRAR STRAUS GIROUX
Book is in very good condition. Some shelf wear to dust jacket.
Exterior page edges have some discoloration (see last photo).
The sequel to The Empire of the Sun, this work puts his earlier account of a boy’s experiences in occupied Shanghai in the context of a lifetime. Ballard’s eye has never been more cinematic, and his writing, especially in the love scenes, is a masterful blend of the raw and the tender.
