About this Item

Though not a trade edition, this American Book of the Month Club edition is the true first, preceding the Little, Brown limited edition, and the regular trade edition. Though it is naturally much more common than the regular trade edition (bound in blue cloth), it seldom turns up as nice as this copy, which is Very Fine in bright red cloth stamped in black, in a Fine brown dustwrapper, without any tears, chips or fading whatsoever, the spine panel just a trifle toned. The true first American edition. 351pp. The novel has been twice adapted to the screen, first as an 11 episode miniseries produced by the BBC in 1981 (starring Jeremy Irons, Anthony Andrews, Diana Quick, Phoebe Nicholls, Simon Jones, Claire Bloom, John Gielgud, Charles Keating, Laurence Olivier and others), and again, somewhat less successfully, in 2008 as a feature film (starring Matthew Goode, Ben Whishaw, Hayley Atwell, Emma Thompson and others). Waugh's most famous work, and perhaps his most personal, a narrative which presents his ironic religious view of life; written during the War, under a mood of depression and nostalgia. Q05439.
