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.

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.
