Brighton Rock - Graham Greene

1938 - William Heinemann Ltd, London - First Edition
A fine first edition of Graham Greene’s exposé of violence and gang warfare. Spine with bright gilt and no fading, no foxing, no inscriptions, scarce thus.

The chilling tale of teenage mob-leader Pinkie; a masterpiece of psycho-realism, a fascinating study of evil, sin, and the 'appalling strangeness of the mercy of God' withholds easy judgement as a narrative takes us through the moral question of what is simultaneously fascinating and repellent.
