FARRELL, J. G.
First edition, first impression of Farrell’s uncommon masterpiece, the so-called Lost Booker. A change in the rules regarding the Booker shortlist at the start of the 1970s precluded nominations from 1970, but in 2008 the anomaly was rectified, and Troubles was retrospectively selected as the winner of the 1970 Booker Prize.
