McLean's novel of life in a British Military Prison
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 204pp.
World War II is drawing to a close, but RAF signals clerk David Fraser is only just beginning a 112 day sentence at the infamous Glasshouse military prison. Fraser’s defiant attitude begins to merit the unwanted attention of the sadistic prison wardens, and Staff Evans quickly forms a relentless vendetta against Fraser, taking delight in watching him inch ever closer to breaking point. Based on Allan Campbell McLean’s own 56-day incarceration, 'The Glasshouse' is a terrifyingly realistic portrayal of life in a British Military Prison.
A good copy. The book has slight tanning and finger marking to the page edges and a slight lean to the spine. The wrapper has some small amount of wear to the edge but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
