Brighton Rock. Graham GREENE.

Brighton Rock.

London: William Heinemann, 1938. [Gangster thriller] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (18 x 12cm), pp.361; [1], blank. Elegantly hand-bound in red half calf, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, matching cloth sides, top edge gilt, publisher's original cloth spine bound in at rear. Faint spotting to first and final leaves; exterior unmarked. A very good copy in a handsome recent leather binding. The chilling tale of teenage mob-leader Pinkie; a masterpiece of psycho-realism, a fascinating study of evil, sin, and the 'appalling strangeness of the mercy of God' withholds easy judgement as a narrative takes us through the moral question of what is simultaneously fascinating and repellent.
