About this Item

First Impression. 8vo; 288pp. Publisher's scarlet cloth, the spine lettered in gilt; in a typographic dust jacket priced 21/-. A Fine copy, tight, square and unmarked (though the top edge lightly dust-soiled); in a just about Fine jacket, the spine somewhat age-toned, with a very short closed tear to the bottom of the front panel. Still, overall, superb and scarce thus. Gordimer's third novel, Occasion for Loving, was written during South Africa's Sharpeville massacre of 1960, which demonstrated to many liberals in the author's camp the futility of nonviolent resistance and marked her own movement toward a political and literary radicalism. While Occasion, like its predecessors, The Lying Days (1953) and A World of Strangers (1958), relied on formal novelistic conventions, her next novels, including The Conservationist (1974), for which she won the Nobel Prize, begin a period of stylistic innovation. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB0722
