OUT OF THE WAR. [London]: Duckworth, [1974]. Octavo, 130 pp., cloth. First edition. Collection of short stories, written in the author's teenage years, mostly set in an English provincial market town in the early 1940s. "... the stories have as their unifying theme the stagnation of adolescence ... and the desolate cinema-cafes, drab milk-bars and dimly lit station refreshment-rooms exactly mirror their mood, and that of the suburban respectability they celebrate." A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#134445).

Price: $25.00
