In the Wet.
by Shute, Nevil.
A Near Fine copy with a touch of rubbing to the heel of the spine and a previous owner bookplate on the front flyleaf in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear to the extremities. Drunk and delirious, an old man lies dying in the Queensland bush. In his opium-hazed last hours, a priest finds his deserted shack and listens to his last words. Half-awake and half-dreaming the old man tells the story of an adventure set decades in the future, in a very different world.
