A near-fine first edition, in the original red cloth. Slight bump to one corner. Signed by the author to the first flyleaf. In a very good unclipped dust jacket, with some chipping to the edges and corners and some loss of colour to the folds.
John Turner, a young man with a chequered past, has been told he has just one year to live. He decides to use his time in search of three very different men he met briefly during the war: an snobbish British pilot, a young corporal accused of murder, and a black G.I. accused of attempted rape. Along the way, Turner learns about forgiveness, tolerance and second chances, and overcomes his fear of death.
