Book Description Collins, London, 1975. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Translated from the French by J. Maxwell Brownjohn. First published in France under the title Les Tetes de Stephanie. Classic 1970s-vintage dustjacket artwork. Jacket illustration by Elizabeth Woodhouse & Gerry Embleton. From rear panel of dustjacket: "When this novel was first published pseudonymously and very successfully in France, it quickly became known that it was in fact written by Romain Gary, best-selling author of Lady L and The Roots of Heaven. In a subsequent interview Romain Gary claimed that he chose a pseudonym for Direct Flight to Allah because in it he has attempted to bridge the gap between the sheer pleasure of reading, now more often associated with popular fiction, and the enrichment of mind offered by specifically literary works. For all its ironic lightness of touch, this novel is based on a topic of vital concern to all of us: the arms traffic and the upheavals now taking place in the Persian Gulf, the Yemen in particular". Printed in Great Britain. Bound in original brown boards with bright gilt lettering to spine, in publisher's unclipped pictorial dustjacket. A very nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. 254pp. Uncommon title, scarce with dustjacket. SB-255. Size: 21.5 x 14cm. Seller Inventory # 024616
