----------trade paperback, about 5 x 7.75 inches, a solid Very Good copy, a bit of light rubbing and edge wear, spine crease, ink name, xiv + 603 pages, ---"A satirical picture of a small group of Reading residents and a study of the British class system and snobbery. Hamilton's world is peopled with sad, brooding characters trailing on the edge of society, leading bleak, loveless lives. The author also wrote "Hangover Square" ---In Ernest Ralph Gorse, Patrick Hamilton creates one of fiction’s most captivating anti-heroes, whose heartlessness and lack of scruple are matched only by the inventiveness and panache with which he swindles his victims. With great deftness and precision Hamilton exposes how his dupes’ own naivete, snobbery or greed make them perfect targets. These three novels are shot through with the brooding menace and sense of bleak inevitability so characteristic of the author. There is also vivid satire and caustic humour. --Gorse is thought to be based on the real-life murderer Neville Heath, hanged in 1946."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
