London: Hogarth, 1946. First edition. Cloth over Boards. Octavo, pp. 160. Very Good in Chipped and Torn DJ. Item #5833
Scarce copy of author's second book of stories. Sansom has been compared to Kafka: he turned wartime firefighting experiences in the London Blitz into charged and intimate literature where the everyday becomes symbolic and is imbued with sinister overtones.
