A near-fine first edition, in the original red binding with gold embossed child. In a very good, unclipped dust jacket, with some discolouration to the top and right side of front cover. The "Evelyn" in the authors name has faded.
In a future, dystopian Britain, Miles Plastic is in prison for arson. Which isn’t so bad, really – the prisons are actually quite nice. When he is released, he finds himself a nice, wholesome job at a state-run euthanasia clinic trying to control the crushing volume of voluntary applicants. At the clinic he meets Clara, a beautiful, bearded woman, and falls in love. But, as it turns out, love formed at a euthanasia clinic is fraught with its own unique challenges.
