BROOKS, John. The Expert. London: Tom Stacey Ltd., (1973). First UK Printing. Pp. (4),-284. 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "The Expert is an appalling contemporary figure. A young man, the product of social science multiplied by social change; the new boy with all the answers, who communicates with compelling assurance, in the outlandish and disturbing illiteracies of those new disciplines straining after universality. In the small seaside town, he annotates, without love, the structure of the community. Half of him, the half that should respect the follies and faiths of his fellow men, and experience that love which is the soul's brightest flame,is missing. Rational, physical, resentful of what he cannot share, he is o ne of a new and simian tribe that antics mischievously in our society. Fortunately his raw philosophies have yet to instruct him on man's very specialtalent -- humour -- which will yet save us from him, and perhaps him himse lf from his own madness." - from the dustjacket. Light spotting to edges and sparse foxing to initial and final leaves, else very good in nicked, flap-creased, unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
