An illustrated classic from the author of Saville and Flight into Camden. Written before David Storey's 1976 Man Booker Prize-winning novel Saville, Edward tells the tale of a kindly and aging bishop who lives his life by just and holy standards-until one day he is surprised by the appearance of an old key, sitting in a curious box atop his study desk. Illustrated by the fine hand of Donald Parker, Edward follows the bishop as he works to ascertain the true nature of the key-and the lock which it opens. In stunning, gripping prose the story unfolds as a mechanic comes to settle the matter once and for all. Part childlike, humorous frolic, part overarching metaphor for the challenges each of us face, Edward is a satirical classic.
