What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

A Times Literary Supplement reviewer described The Green Man as 'three genres of novel in one' -  ghost story, moral fable, and comic novel. The novel reflects Amis's willingness to experiment with genre novels, while displaying many of the characteristics of his conventional novels, both in superficial aspects such as fogeyishness and problems with alcohol, and in more substantive aspects such as a self-reflective observation of human cruelty and selfishness in everyday relations. 

First edition.

With the original unclipped dustwraper. 

A very smart copy of this work.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. With unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, in a lovely condition. Just some minor shelfwear to the extremities. Dustwrapper is very smart. Minor sunning to the edges, and a small closed tear to the head of the rear joint. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
