Although completed in late 1955 it was not published until 1957, a mutual friend novelist Alan Barnsley having sent the proof's to Evelyn Waugh who was at the time writing "The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold" which also dealt with drug-induced hallucinations he had experienced. Waugh's and others positive responses prompted Macmillan to publish the novel in February 1957. The novel was an immediate success and enabled Muriel Spark to give up editorial work and devote herself to full-time creative writing. Bookseller Inventory #
