(GREENE, Graham). ALLAIN, Marie-Françoise. The Other Man : Conversations with Graham Greene. Translated from the French by Guido Waldman. London: The Bodley Head, (1983). First UK Edition. Pp. (6),7-[187],(5). 8vo, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed green. "to make Graham Greene's real acquaintance it is necessary to look for him in his books. 'I thinkmy books are my children,' he frankly concedes. In his autobiographical wo rks, 'A Sort of Life' and 'Ways of Escape' he does, it is true, lift a corner of the veil. But we have had to wait till the publication of these uninhibited, free-ranging conversations with the young French writer Marie-Francoise Allain to discover the hidden Greene. He discusses his childhood, his travels and encounters, the genesis of his novels and plays, his religion, his inner world with a freedom and candour which overcome his habitual reticence." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. The Secret Man; 2. Divided Loyalties; 3. The Medium and Russian Roulette; 4. Writing and Action; 5. The False Political Disloyalties; 6. Certainties; 7. Of Cats and Bumble Bees; 8. The Poor Little Night in the Big Trees; 9. 'A Laugh in the Shadow of the Gallows'. Very good in very good unclipped dustjacket. 25.00

37 ALLEN, Charles KIPLING, Rudyard Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Little, Brown, London, 2007, ISBN:9780316726559 
ALLEN, Charles. Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. (London) : Little, Brown, (2007). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xix,(3),1-426,+ 16 pp plates. Text illustrations. Maps. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to spine, illustrated endpapers. "This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy' the troubled youth eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too arrogant for his own good. A boy terrified of heat, darkness, and disease; a teenager who suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief. A young man compelled to take dangerous 'night walks' into the native city of Lahore. This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos: who visited prostitutes; who wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations; who wrote sympathetically about the drunks and vagabonds of the British underclass. But when Kipling used his pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he became too scandalous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: 'Seek not to question.' 1. 'Mother of cities': Bombay and a beginning, 1865-7. 2. 'Youth in the eye of thesun': Bombay and expulsion from Eden, 1867-71. 3. 'A double death': Souths ea and Lahore, 1871-7. 4.

'The seething city': Lahore and the Family Square, 1883-4. 7. 'The Oldest Land': The Punjab and Simla, 1885. 8. 'In vigil or toil or ease': The Plains and the Hills, 1886. 9. 'Forty foolish yarns': From Lahore to Allahabad, 1887-8. 10. 'Who travels the fastest': Simla, Allahabad and an ending, 1888-9. 11. 'Life and Death ... and Love and Fate': London and fame, 1889-91. 12. 'Try as he will': Weddings and funerals, Vermont and Sussex, 1892-9.
