London: The Bodley Head, 1973. [Thriller] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.335; , blank. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles to spine, top edge tinted, in dust-jacket designed by Michael Harvey, priced at £2.00 net. A clean, fine copy. '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 #56287
