Title:Intensive Care - A Novel
AW & AH Reed, 1971. Dustwrapper has wear at extremities, some fading and foxing. Red cloth boards have very minor wear and fading. Some foxing on page edges. Extending from World War I to an imagined twenty-first century, INTENSIVE CARE (first published in 1970) highlights the appalling treatment of the physically and mentally sick. Tom Livingstone, young and wounded in the trenches of Flanders, must learn the value of life and subsequently the value of death. In a futuristic world, the autistic Milly Galbraith has been deemed substandard and faces elimination. In this hypnotic novel, Janet Frame explores the harshness of humankind and makes a plea for us to restore humanity.
