Notes

First edition, first impression. This copy specially bound for presentation with the logo of the Whitbread Award and the dates 1984-85, and with the programme for the 1985 Whitbread Award Luncheon loosely inserted. Though Nights at the Circus won the James Tait Black Prize for 1984, it was not the recipient of the Whitbread Award and Carter was not a judge that year. It may have been shortlisted, but despite making enquiries of the Whitbread Award organization (now the Costa Award), we have been unable to determine why this copy was bound in this manner.
