What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition, first impression, in the publisher's original price unclipped dust wrapper.

Lodge's comic novel is about a poor English student who, rather than writing his thesis, regularly finds himself distracted in the reading room of the British Museum. He encounters a number of weird characters, and in some aspects mirrors Joyce's 'Ulysses'.

A somewhat uncommon early novel from the English author and literary critic.

With a contemporary inscription to the front free endpaper, dated 1965.
