London: Howard Baker, 1984. 208p., first edition boards in dj, some of the text block was printed on browned paperstock. Mildest edgewear. British novel with a Marxist perspective; sort of in the "summit-meeting of notables" genre, which tends to mere dialogue, but here well-novelized and humorously clever. This copy is author-inscribed "warmly fraternally" and signed as Bill.
