Very Good in Very Good jacket. First British edition. Jacket design by Charles Gorham. Short, closed tear in margin of preliminary page (not affecting text), pages foxed, spine a bit cocked, about very good in a very good dustwrapper with spine faded, edges with short tears. Author's first book.
An interesting, if somewhat dated book. This is what the early Hemingway was trying to write. The style and language is fixed in its time period, shortly before the US entry to WWII, so the book can seem quaint and dated. But the vocabulary and way of expressing thoughts is exceptional. It is a book that seems light but which requires the reader to "fill in the blanks" to an extent the reader either becomes deeply engaged or is turned off.
It is said to have had a great influence on several more famous writers who were starting out at that time. A careful reader will see those traces.
I would recommend the book, though it long has been out of print.
