15 BOWEN, Elizabeth Eva Trout or Changing Scenes. First American Edition in dustjacket
Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1968, 
BOWEN, Elizabeth. Eva Trout or Changing Scenes. New York : Alfred A. Kopf, 1968. First American Edition. Pp (14),[3]-302,(6). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. "In Eva Trout the extraordinary gifts that make Eiizabeth Bowen one of the finest of living novelists are more thanever manifest. Her new novel is a triumph. She describes it as a "tragi-co medy," which differs from her others in that it' "follows the fortunes of one character along whose line of fate the events are strung." Eva Trout, a great, tall girl, is something of an oddity .. a "natural," an original ...ad her dfebastating simplicity makes her an enigma to those around her. Mo therless, she has spent her childhood with a father whose obsessfive, absorbing love for another man left him with little to spare for his only child.Disappointed by reality, Eva is dangerously half-enmeshed in a world of fa ntasy and steers in her imperious way an erratic course. Rural Worcestershire, the Kentish sea coast, the American Middle West, London's Kensngton, Cambridge University, Paris, the glades of Fontainebleau, the lake and woods around a derelict English castle, and finally a great London railway station successively provide the stages, as it were, on which Eva's drama plays itself out with mounting intensity." (from the dj). Very good in nicked, unclipped dustjacket. 35.00

"The Flowing Summer is essentially a story, the story of Lee, the city twelve-year-old; of Old Jack, his grandfather; ofThe Woman; and Eric, the boy next door. It is also the story of The River, The Strait, Graham's Beach, the woods and the herring run, and how they ca me to be woven into the fabric of a boy's thinking. It is a poem almost by accident. Its authorsays, 'The Flowing Summer sprouted as a story, and was written first in prose, but I had been thinking of how narrative verse is so frequently concerned with the heroic . . . wondering whether certain aspects of the undramatic continuity in common living could live again in poetry. And almost before I knew it The Flowing Summer was being worked out in asimple verse form; a form in which, if I were lucky, "the happy acddent of poetry might occur.' Winifred Fox's black-and-white illustratioions blend perfectly with the verse. Both the auththor and illustrator, incidentally, know intimately the atmosphere they have conveyed here—the atmosphere, and the people, of the farmlands sloping down to the Atlantic coast of Canada."- from the dj.
