Golding, Louis. The Doomington Wanderer A Book of Tales.
London: Gollancz, 1934.
First edition. 8vo. Publisher’s black cloth titled in green. Pretty much an immaculate copy in dustwrapper save for some uniform sunning of the yellow Gollancz dustwrapper. Quite remarkably clean. Internally clean and fresh. A collection of tales that veer into the weird on occasion, the mysterious on other occasions and the uncomfortable quite frequently. Golding is rather renowned for having a rather obsessive relationship with race, and Jewish culture in Britain and abroad...he gives the impression of a man not quite knowing who or where he should be fighting. Scarce and very interesting, although the racially charged language will on occasion have the modern reader struggling.
