In Between the Sheets signed by Ian Mcewan 1st / 1st 1978
First UK edition and first print published by Jonathan Cape in 1978. It is in near fine condition. The wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. The spine is a shade sunned. It is not price clipped. The book is very presentable with clean and bright boards. The pages have no foxing or previous owners ink. Overall a near fine copy and signed by the author to the title page without dedication.
The collection is McEwan's second book and second collection of short stories, and was regarded by the author (along with his first collection, First Love, Last Rites) as an opportunity to experiment and find his voice as a writer. In an interview with Christopher Ricks in 1979, McEwan commented, "They were a kind of laboratory for me. They allowed me to try out different things, to discover myself as a writer." A rare signed copy.
