Octavo. Black cloth-covered boards lettered to spine in gilt. Pages toned as usual. A fine copy in the pictorial dust jacket lightly creased to edges. Price sticker of The Dublin Bookshop in Irish pounds to inner flap partially obscuring the publisher's set price for the British market. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper.
Angela Carter remarks in her advance review printed on the lower panel, "A delicious and exemplary debut - short stories that are funny, and sometimes sad, elegant, scrupulously poised, always intelligent and, not least, original".
Scarce especially signed.
