Printing Details

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 319pp.

Not signed as such but loosely inserted are two handwritten postcards from Lynne Reid Banks.

Pregnant by accident, kicked out of home by her father, 27-year-old Jane Graham goes to ground in the sort of place she feels she deserves—a bug-ridden boarding-house attic in Fulham. She thinks she wants to hide from the world, but finds out that even at the bottom of the heap, friends and love can still be found, and self-respect is still worth fighting for.


Good condition. The dustwrapper is chipped to the edges and faded to the spine but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve. The book has a slight lean, some spots of foxing and general age-toning but is perfectly readable.
