Octavo (21cm); green paper-covered boards over brown cloth backstrip, titled in blind on cover and gilt on spine; yellow topstain; yellow dustjacket by Lawrence Ratzkin; 190pp. Fine.

Film critic's debut novel exploring homosexuality and a pandemic of unknown origins. "London - the London of Now - is terrorized by the Plague. Not a Nuclear Holocaust. That would be too simple. Too easy. No - a Plague. Origins unknown. Cure: none. Death comes not at once or Together, but Singly. One by One." (from the dustjacket). Not in YOUNG.
