Information
First UK edition, first print hardback of A POSSIBLE LIFE, by Sebastian Faulks and published by Hutchinson/ Random House UK Ltd., London in 2012. Signed by Faulks on the title page. 'Signed Copy' sticker attached to the front. With full numberline 2 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3 1 on the copyright page.

The book is in near fine condition (Clean grey boards with embossed lettering on the spine) with minor wear to the pictorial dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"Terrified, a young prisoner in the Second World War closes his eyes and pictures himself going out to bat on a sunlit cricket ground in Hampshire.

Across the courtyard in a Victorian workhouse, a father is too ashamed to acknowledge his son.

A skinny girl steps out of a Chevy with a guitar; her voice sends shivers through the skull.

Soldiers and lovers, parents and children, scientists and musicians risk their bodies and hearts in search of connection – some key to understanding what makes us the people we become.

Provocative and profound, Sebastian Faulks’s dazzling novel journeys across continents and time to explore the chaos created by love, separation and missed opportunities. From the pain and drama of these highly particular lives emerges a mysterious consolation: the chance to feel your heart beat in someone else’s life."

'A delight… A tightly written, moving and exciting' - Daily Telegraph

'Faulks is a writer who gets better and better; he understands how to draw a reader in' - Daily Mail

'Profound… Faulks evokes a deep compassion for all his troubled characters…exploring big ideas without compromising the human drama' - Observer

'Faulk’s most intriguing fictional offering... Moving...engaging...poignant' - Independent on Sunday
