Troubles by J.G. Farrell 1st revised edition 1983
This is the first edition / print of the reissue published by Jonathan Cape in 1983 (the first edition was published in 1970). This copy is in near fine condition. The wrapper has a shade of fading to the spine. The wrapper is very complete and has very little wear at all. It isn't price clipped. The book has a minor bump to the top edge of the back board. Otherwise the boards and pages are very clean and without marks. Overall a near fine copy.
The "lost booker", Troubles concerns the dilapidation of a once grand Irish hotel (the Majestic), in the midst of the political upheaval during the Irish War of Independence (1919–1921). It is the first instalment in Farrell's acclaimed 'Empire Trilogy', preceding The Siege of Krishnapur and The Singapore Grip.
