Printing Details

First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 20 × 13.5cm, 88pp

From the dustwrapper, "What are the limits beyond his own control that threaten the modern writer? The editor of the T.L.S. put this question to ten representative authors, and invited them to consider the position of the writer in an age which places greater value on the progress of technology than on the state of the individual. The essays are by Arnold J Toynbee, John Bowen, Lawrence Durrell, Gerald Heard, Nathalie Sarraute, William Golding, Arthur Calder-Marshall, Saul Bellow, Alan Sillitoe, and Richard Wollheim.


There is some creasing to the wrapper's top edge but this copy is generally in good plus condition.
