Ice

Author(s): Anna Kavan; Christopher Priest (Introduction by)

Modern & Contemporary Literature

In a land devastated by war, a nameless narrator pursues an elusive white-haired woman in the clutches of a government official known only as "The Warden." Neither will giver her up, but a freak ecological apocalypse is indifferent to their rival claims. As a terrifying wall of ice continues its incursion, freezing everything in its path, it seems that only the white-haired woman is truly resigned to the fate of the world. Ice is hailed as classic of science fiction and a definitive work of the slipstream genre. As part of the new and improved Cased Classics, this edition features a false die cutting of a triangle on the dust jacket, while printed on the cover board is the striking artwork of contemporary artist Naomi Frears.
