A three act play by the perennially-underappreciated Anglo-Russian writer William Gerhardi (1895-1977), hailed as a genius by Evelyn Waugh but out of favour by the 1940s and rediscovered and reprinted at intervals since, most recently by Head of Zeus, who reprinted his first two novels in the 2010s. This copy is one of 300 copies for sale from an edition of 315, number three in the publisher's series of 'Yellow Books'.
