The Making of the Representative For Planet 8 (Canopus In Argos; Archives) by Doris Lessing

$7.96 $9.95

This is a very good to like new paperback. Trade paperback, not mass market. First Vintage Books Edition May 1988. Crisp and clean, unmarked inside. There is only a hint of light natural tanning to pages from age. Binding is tight and straight. No creasing along spine. Cover is clean and shiny with only a hint of shelf wear from display.

The 4th novel in the series, Canopus in Argos: Archives, this book is the basis for a Philip Glass opera with the same title. Planet 8 is a contented planet - warm and peaceful. Inhabited by vibrant people and intended by the benevolent lords for a higher purpose. Then, without warning, it is plunged into an Ice Age. Slowly the inhabitants witness the gradual destruction of life and they have known it. Slowly, they begin to make sense of it all and transcend their own extinction.
