Description:

New York. 1966. Norton. 2nd Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. 240 pages. hardcover. ISBN: inventory # 1860. FROM THE PUBLISHER - TREMOR OF INTENT is an espionage novel by the English author Anthony Burgess. First published in 1966, it was in many ways a reaction to the heavy-handed, humorless spy fiction of John Le Carré, and to Ian Fleming’s James Bond, a character that Burgess felt to be a relic of imperialism. In YOU’VE HAD YOUR TIME, the second part of his Confessions, Burgess relates that the title came to him on a hungover morning when his hand began to shake. ‘That,’ his wife said, ‘is tremor of intent.’ The subtitle, ‘An Eschatological Spy Novel,’ refers to the novel’s depiction of the Cold War as a form of hostile symbiosis, an ‘ultimate conflict’ in which ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are no longer adequate terms. In Burgess’s view, Russia and the West formed a duoverse, a yin and yang. The novel confused critics at the time, as it straddled the lines between serious and comic fiction, popular genre storytelling and metaphysical philosophy. The completely amoral Agent Hiller of MI6 journeys to the city of Yarylyuk aboard a passenger ship called the ‘Polyolbion.’ His mission is to infiltrate a convention of Soviet scientists and bring back to Britain his childhood friend Roper, who has defected to Russia. Along the way, he meets the sexually precocious 16-year-old Clara, the voluptuous femme fatale Miss Devi, and the shadowy tycoon Theodorescu (modeled loosely on Orson Welles). .
