              The world is threatened by encroaching ice, creeping down day by day from the polar ice caps. The imminent catastrophe has thrown the world's governments into chaos, and no one knows whether the disaster has an environmental or nuclear cause, or how soon the end will come. One ma...n pursues his sylph-like, silver-haired ex-fiancee ('the girl') as she flees from country to country, away from her husband; away from the malevolent 'warden' of one of the proto-territories that have sprung up as traditional societies crumble; away from him.

              The Parson was not published in Kavan's lifetime, but found after her death in manuscript form and published in 1995. This is its first publication in paperback. The Parson is an upright army officer so nick-named for his apparent prudishness. On leave in his native homeland, he ...meets a rich and beguiling beauty. The days that he spends with her, riding in and exploring the wild moorland, have their own enchantment. But she grows restless in this desolate land. Although in love with him, she discourages any intimacy. Until, that is, she persuades him to take her to a sinister castle situated on a treacherous headland. This is a tale of divided selves locked in an unequal embrace. Passion is revealed as a play of the senses as well as a destructive force.

              Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world's greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith. Celebrating the range and diversity of Penguin Classics, they take us from snowy Japa...n to springtime Vienna, from haunted New England to a sun-drenched Mediterranean island, and from a game of chess on the ocean to a love story on the moon. Beautifully designed and printed, these collectible editions are bound in colourful, tactile cloth and stamped with foil. Set in a frozen world that is gradually being devastated by ever-encroaching ice, Anna Kavan's masterwork follows one man's pursuit of a mysterious silver-haired girl to the ends of the earth; to the end of everything. 'Few contemporary novelists could match the intensity of her vision' J.G. Ballard
