1948 Work Suspended And Other Stories Written Before the Second World War
What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
Uniform edition, published the same year as the first. At the outbreak of the war in September 1939, Waugh left Piers Court and moved his young family to Pixton Park in Somerset, the Herbert family's country seat, while he sought military employment. He also began a novel, in a new style using first-person narration. Work on this project ceased when in December Waugh was commissioned into the Royal Marines and began training at Chatham naval base. The novel was never completed; fragments were eventually published under the title 'Work Suspended'. Including 'Mr Loveday's Little Outing', 'Winner Takes All', 'Excursion in Reality' and others.
In a blue cloth binding with original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally smart. A few marks to the boards. Dustwrapper is sound, though spotted, with just some slight chipping in a couple of places. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just some spotting to the textblock edge.
