2 Van Der Post, Laurens About Blady - A Pattern Out of Time
London Chatto and Windus 1991 0701138025 / 9780701138028 First Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A Very good+ unmarked copy which has a very small indentation to front top edge and age toning to page edges. Dustjacket is VG+ and is not price clipped. 255 pages. In this absorbing autobiographical memoir, Blady is not so much the principal (although she has a crucial part to play) as the core symbol and catalyst. It is a true story of people, events, themes and relationships which together have formed a special pattern in Laurens van der Post's life. Unlike anything he has written before, it combines intuitive fantasy with a taut dramatic narrative as the story gathers pace to the climax of Blady's great race. Outwardly random occurrencesm from the writer's childhood in Africa to the death of his son from cancer, provide the framework for the searching exploration that follows - an exploration into fundamental aspects of the human spirit, its besetting ills and troubles, and the life-forces that keep it intact.
