A Girl in Winter.
LARKIN, Philip

Category: First Edition

London, Faber and Faber. 1947.


First edition, 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket. Larkins second and final novel. Larkin stated that he had originally intended to write further novels, but he published no more fiction after A Girl in Winter, possibly because of a shortage of material on which to draw for inspiration. John Osborne called it "the most underestimated work in the Larkin canon" and "a harbinger of greatness". Near fine, light fading to the spine, extremities a little rubbed, dust-jacket, neat restoration to head and foot, repair to tear to lower flap and some light surface soiling.

Price £1500.00
