Remainder mark bottom edge. Jacket has some light rubbing. This is the last work of British novelist Gerhardie, whose work during the 1920s and 30s was hailed as genius by such notable peers as Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, and Arnold Bennett. From 1940 until his death in 1977, Gerhardie fell into a mysterious, self-imposed silence, publishing nothing. After his death a manuscript for this book was found, but not the last great work of fiction that was expected. Rather, this book is a "biography" of the times in which Gerhardie lived.
