(no dust jacket) [moderately shelfworn copy, light bumping at several corners, slight exposure of board at bottom front corner, some soiling to edges of text block, gilt lettering on spine and front cover rubbed but still readable; an ex-library book, with label remnants on spine and pocket remnant on front pastedown; descriptive text from dust jacket glued to ffep]. "This vital novel has for its subject the insecurity of life in a machine age economy, though it is in no sense a 'thesis novel.'" (Well, that's a relief.) The book's setting is a large engineering firm in the English Midlands that's struggling to survive the depredations of the Depression. The New York Times gave it a featured review, opining that it "can stand honest comparison with the best of its order." ReadInk specializes in the works of Eardley Beswick -- nah, just kidding, but we do currently have two of his books for sale, and how many booksellers can make that claim?
