Third impression of one of Henry Green's most respected novels
First edition, third impression. Hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 13cm, 269pp.
A novel about working-class factory life in Birmingham. Lily Gates keeps house for her widowed father, her timid suitor, Jim, and the patriarch, Craighan, whose house it is. The household slides into disarray as Lily, tempted by the possibility of a more romantic life, elopes with a bolder suitor.
The book is in good condition, with secure binding. The pages clean but with some spotted foxing to the edges. The dustwrapper is a little tatty with scuffs and tanning to the spine and front panel.
