London: The Bodley Head, 1973. Thriller. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.335. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles to spine, top edge tinited, in dustjacket designed by Michael Harvey. Slight reading lean; some light bruising to jacket edges. Very good indeed. 'The Honorary Consul' returns to that third world the critics call 'Greeneland' where the writer's characters live on the ragged edge. This South-American based drama, where a whisky-sodden figure of dubious authority is taken by revolutionaries, was one of the author's favourite works. Basis for the BAFTA-nominated movie starring Michael Caine, Richard Gere and the late Bob Hoskins. Item #49173
