Dealer Notes
A very good copy of a title MacDiarmid himself deemed a critical failure, yet one which was pivotal to his development and intended as “ideally complimentary” to A Drunk Man Looks at a Thistle (1926): “positive where it is negative, optimistic where it is pessimistic, and constructive where it is destructive” (MacDiarmid to George Ogilvie).
Author M’DIARMID, Hugh [GRIEVE, Christopher Murray]
