First edition, first impression of the author’s first novel which won the 1960 Macmillan Fiction Award. Storey, a former professional rugby league footballer, also wrote the adapted screenplay for the 1963 British feature film of the same title.

Octavo. Original grey boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Short crease to head of spine, corners negligibly bumped, small surface abrasion to front free endpaper, red pen marking to bottom edge. A very good copy in the slightly soiled jacket with sections of tape-repair to foot of rear panel and spine and price scored through in red ink.
