London; Longmans, 1960. FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.256. Author's debut novel. Publisher's hardback in pictorial dust jacket priced 16s. Some minor handling and edge wear, faint tidemark to fore-edge. Some light soiling on rear panel. Tipped-in Richard Harris card and signed by Harris on the front free end paper. Also an original photograph of Harris loosely inserted in the book. A very good copy which shows well with scarce signature.
A gritty tale of working class northern England, which won the MacMillan Prize for fiction and was the basis for the Oscar-nominated 1963 film starring Richard Harris a hard Rugby League player.
