Vintage. 2007. Paperback. Very Good. "I wasn't rich, but my life was secure. That had always been its fundamenta l premise," observes Ethan Learner, an English professor at a small college in Connecticut. Moments later, his 10-year-old son, Josh, is killed by a h it-and-run driver, inaugurating a novel of terrible beauty that charts the progress of grief with concerto-like precision. For Ethan, his wife, Grace, and their daughter, Emma, Josh becomes both a cold absence and a constant, haunting, unfulfilled promise. For Dwight the driver who killed Josh the e vent stands as more evidence of a significantly flawed life. Dwight is no c artoon villain; with a son, an ex-wife and a history of sudden violence, he 's like a lesser Ethan a poor father who, through incompetence, has killed another man's son., Vintage, 2007, London: Frederick Warne,1973. 2nd. ed. 1964 4th. imp. 1973 pocket HBK + d/w, illustrated Cumulonimbus Cloud over St. Bride's Bay Pembrokeshire South Wales front cover.

In this book Patrick de Gramont draws upon evidence from infant observation and linguistics as well as from information theory in order to make two related points. First, he demonstrates how our prevailing theories of meaning (psychoanalysis and Piaget's cognitive psychology) have failed to account for how we distort meaning. Second, he shows how language plays an essential role in this distortion of meaning. Book is in good condition with rubbing, wear and soil.. 1st Edition. Soft Cover. Good/No Jacket.
