Hardcover with dust jacket, black cloth with lavender and silver spine titles, 14 by 20.8 cm, 223 pp. The hardcover has light wear and bumping to the boards, a name and date in pen on the ffep, a few tiny corner bends and spots here and there, and a tiny remainder dot on the bottom edge. The upper corner of the front pastedown was folded under during production (1 10mm fold), and it left a small adhesive mark on the facing corner of the ffep. The jacket is fair with rubbing, yellowing, and edge wear and chips. Baron (1917 – 1999) was a British author and screenwriter known for his highly acclaimed novel about D-Day entitled From the City from the Plough (1948) and his London novel The Lowlife (1963). His best-known work, however, are probably the episodes he wrote for the 1975-77 Poldark series. The Lowlife follows Harryboy, “lowlife, scum. But if he leaves the track after the 13th race quids in, everyone will say, There goes Harryboy Boas, King o' the Track. This is an understated study of an East End Jewish gambler that deals subtly with the consuming guilt of those Jews who took no part in the war.” The dust jacket is in a fresh mylar cover.
