Small rub to front corners, last (blank) page has loss to edge. Otherwise clean & tight. 'In 1984, in the Palm Grove in Sydney's Botanic Gardens, the artist Colin McCahon went missing. He was found by police early next morning in Centennial Park, kilometres away, with no memory of who he was or where he had been. They took him to St Vincent's Hospital where he remained, a complete unknown, while a major retrospective exhibition of his paintings opened on the other side of town. In Dark Night, Martin Edmond walks in McCahon'sfootsteps, past pubs and monuments, art galleries and churches, barracks and parks: "to accompany him some way into the darkness of his end.". Edmond's record of the journey is a brilliant explorationof a city and its denizons; of the nature of art and the foundations of faith; and of the shadowy crossroads where they intersect.' Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall. Very Good.
