London: Secker and Warburg, 1969. UNCORRECTED PROOF, preceding the First Edition.
Basis for Sam Peckinpah's violent 1971 film classic, Straw Dogs, starring Dustin Hoffman, Susan George, and a bunch of kill-crazy Devon townies, considered by many to be his finest directorial effort in a career that included many important films.
Very Good in orange printed wrappers. Address label to the front endpaper. Slight lean, with starting to the lower front hinge, and a lightly faded spine.
