Book has some visible wear on the binding, cover, pages. Biggest little used bookstore in the world.
From the Publisher
Writing with the telegraphic swiftness and microscopic sensitivity
that have made her one of our most distinguished journalists, Joan
Didion creates a shimmering novel of innocence and evil.A
Book of Common Prayer is the story of two American women
in the derelict Central American nation of Boca Grande. Grace
Strasser-Mendana controls much of the country''s wealth and knows
virtually all of its secrets; Charlotte Douglas knows far too
little. "Immaculate of history, innocent of politics," she has come
to Boca Grande vaguely and vainly hoping to be reunited with her
fugitive daughter. As imagined by Didion, her fate is at once
utterly particular and fearfully emblematic of an age of
conscienceless authority and unfathomable violence.
