Near Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Fully bound in blue cloth. The spine is gilt-stamped. 217pps. There is a very slight, almost imperceptible lean to the spine. A small abrasion is on the verso of the half-title page, near the fore-edge. Otherwise clean, tight, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed on the spine-ends and on the rear white panel; no chips or tears. A very nice copy, all in all.
"...Oliver, the dispenser's son, adolescent in the England of two-seaters, the silent screen, the Savoy Orpheans. And round him, in the small huddle of houses by a minimal river that is Stilbourne, are woven the complicated, recurring yet never identical patterns of existence; patterns compounded of sex and calf love, rebellion and submission, dottiness, class distinction, tragedy and near-farce."
