First edition, first impression of the author’s satirical Bildungsroman. “It’s not that I half knew my mother. I knew half of her: the lower half…”

Octavo. Original black and red boards, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket. Light spotting to edges of text block, endpapers a touch tanned. An excellent copy in a slightly rubbed and soiled jacket with mildly toned spine panel and a minor chip to front flap.
