Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. 1st / 1st 1968
FIRST UK EDITION published by Jonathan Cape in 1968. The crisp bright wrapper is almost fine. It has been price clipped with a reprice publishers sticker applied. The book is excellent with the bright mustard top stain. No foxing or previous owner's ink. It is a very near fine copy.
The novel takes the form of the fictional memoirs of Howard W. Campbell Jr., an American, who moved to Germany in 1923 at age 11, and later became a known playwright and Nazi propagandist. The story of the novel is narrated by Campbell himself, writing his memoirs while awaiting trial for war crimes in an Israeli prison. A rare title to find in this superb condition.
