The Naive and Sentimental Lover.

London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1971. [Suspense] PROOF COPY. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.416. Publisher's grey paper covers, decorated with the publisher's logo, and showing titles, publication date and a price of £2.25 in green. Black ink ownership to reverse of front cover. Covers starting to come away from the spine towards the head. Toning and light staining to spine, with a few minor marks and light wear to covers. Light spotting and toning to edges; internally clean. Very good. This acclaimed novel follows Aldo Cassidy (the naive and sentimental lover), a successful, judicious man, wrenched away from the ordered certainties of his life by a sudden encounter with Shamus, a wild, carousing artist and Helen, his nakedly alluring wife. Cassidy, plunged into a whirlpool of recklessness and spontaneity, becomes a man bewildered and agonised as he is torn between two poles of a nature more complex than he had ever imagined.
