Book Description Hutchinson, London, 1971. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Jacket photography by Colin Andrews. ***SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author in neat blue fountain pen ink on the title page: 'To Janet and Stuart Clarke with every good wish. Stanley Middleton.' ***First impression of the true first edition. ***Near fine in brown cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine. Gilt ISBN number to bottom board (as called for). Pale grey front and rear free endpapers and pastedowns. Very light unobtrusive off-setting to front and rear endpapers. No inscriptions (other than the author's). Pages clean and bright. Very slight foxing to less than 1mm edge of fore edge of rear endpaper. Spine tight. Gilt titles bright. ***In a near fine colour illustrated dustwrapper which has not been price-clipped, showing original publisher's price of 35s/£1.75 net. Dustwrapper edges very slightly rubbed. Tail of spine very slightly nicked and creased. Very tiny light splash stain to top of spine of dustwrapper. Back panel of dustwrapper very slightly yellowed (being white background). Front panel and spine of dustwrapper bright. No fading. ***224 pages. 204mm x 136mm. ***'Few other contemporary novelists portray as deeply, nor with such controlled delicacy of detail and observation, the relationships within family groups, the ordinary but decisive choices of life, the individuals sense of his own past and future, as does Stanley Middleton. ***Brazen Prison revolves around the character and situation of Charles Stead. Inspired by Esther, his wife, Charles abandons his successful career making television documentaries and returns to the Midlands town of his childhood to write a novel about India. Its theme - the failure to achieve comprehension, success, goodness - is of radical importance to him, and its working out in his imagination has important consequences in his own life and the lives around him. ***Surrounding Charles are important figures from his past, as well as present, life. His immediate preoccupation is with memories of Iris, a girl who seduced him at the age of eighteen, and who is now separated from Bates, her solid but impressive builder husband. Bates' only child may in fact be Stead's and when Iris finally decides to return to her husband, Charles is involved in a situation of proliferating ambiguities and tensions. At the same time, his relationship with Esther has become more difficult and when Alice - a cousin who admires both Charles and his novel - arrives for a long visit, further tension is engendered. ***In this, his eleventh novel, Stanley Middleton has achieved an intensely live picture of a particular marriage. Seen from within and without, the equivocal nature of the situation and the swirling emotional cross-currents in the relationships of the characters are deftly controlled. 'Brazen Prison' is a fine achievement, well constructed and firmly purposed, and will certainly add to the high critical reputation already established by Stanley Middleton in his previous novels.' (Quote from inside front jacket blurb). ***'A real novel that arrests the reviewer's glib gallop and demands serious judgement. Some critics, I see, have likened Stanley Middleton to Forster. Myself, I found his tone and his aim very much closer to Lawrence of 'Sons and Lovers'. [Richard Mayne in New Statesman - review quote about 'The Just Exchange' by Stanley Middleton from back of jacket blurb]. ***The first impression of the true first edition in its original dustwrapper from this highly critically regarded Booker Prize-winning author. Extremely hard to find in such nice, bright collectable condition in its original dustwrapper, and especially so, being inscribed. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Signed and Inscribed by Author.
