A great find! well spotted. I ve read a couple of WG other books, Marnie is one of my favourites so let us know what it is like when you get round to reading it.
Sure was a bargain at £1.50,.... and .... hubby paid for it so what a result!!!
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
As an NT-er I'm wondering how much of a bargain that was? Of course anything by WG , especially a first edition! - is a bargain
Whilst visiting Attingham Park, a beautiful 18thC mansion near Shrewsbury, now run by the NT, a week ago, I was lucky to find a first edition copy of Greek Fire in their second hand bookshop, complete with original flyleaf and advertising an original 'Popular Book Club' price of 4s/3p.
Will post a review when I've managed to get time to read it.
20. Greek Fire - 1957.
"From first page to last "Greek Fire" has suspense and excitement plus brilliant and subtle writing." - The Star.

" A Greek girl rises like a star from a murky background of intrigue and gangster politics in Athens, the mistress of a smooth politician with a dangerous past. An American who has adopted Greece as the country of his spirit sets himself the task of exposing the political adventurer and whilst a dangerous mission its prize is the love of the girl Anya."
