London: New English Library, 1974. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. First UK Edition. A number and small name in ballpoint on the FFEP otherwise a VG+ copy in an intact D/W which is NOT price-clipped and which has minor edgewear and light creasing near the edges. An above average copy of a book seldom seen in really nice condition as it was a very cheaply produced book where the pages brown easily. One of only 600 copies. It is one of the most frequently banned books in US schools. The Author found the book to be raw and with a surprising power to hurt and horrify.
