BAILEY, Paul. Trespasses. New York : Harper and Row, (1971). First US Edition. Pp (10),11-189,(3). 8vo [145 x 210 mm], black cloth spine letered in silver, white paper-covered boards, top edge dyed black. The second novel by British author Bailey, (b. February 16, 1937). "Trespasses is the almost unbearably moving account of a young man's discovery of his own humanity and the casalties of his course. In vivid fragments of memory-images, dialogues, dreams, letters, Ralph Hicks assembles his ghosts: a mother too limited to hold the affection of husband or son; a father remote and, therefore, loved; the prohibited Miss Potter; his lunatic cousin Harry; Bernard, the homosexual; the crusading wife, whose devotion Ralph rejects with tragic consequences. Ralph's is an anguished progress from the dark of his soul to the house with apple blossoms under a bright sky and the release of confession. Paul Bailey's illumination of character from within and the exquisite exactness of his writing mark him as one of the most important young novelists to emerge in this decade." (from the dj). Very good in lightly worn but unclipped dustjacket. 40.00
