In the arid summer heat, four children – Jack, Julie, Sue and Tom – find themselves abruptly orphaned. All the routines of childhood are cast aside as the children adapt to a now parentless world. Alone in the house together, the children’s lives twist into something unrecognisable as the outside begins to bear down on them.
Fine first edition with some slight bruising to the top and the bottom of the spine. In a fine, unclipped dust jacket with some slight bumping along the top edge of the back cover.
