THE GLAMOUR. London: Jonathan Cape, [1984]. Octavo, decorated wrappers. Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. "Outcasts of society, who pass unnoticed in 'the hierarchy of visual interest,' can make themselves invisible, a talent that is, ironically, the 'glamour' of the title. The amnesiac hero gradually relearns the use of this talent and rediscovers his love for the heroine. A delicately ambivalent tale of welcome alienation" (Brian Stableford).
