[minimal wear to book; jacket slightly chipped at top of spine, small closed tear at upper corner of rear panel, otherwise clean and attractive]. Comic novel about a Lincolnshire native who "since infancy has dedicated himself exclusively to studying English village life, which, he maintains, is completely misrepresented in our current country literature. The rural scene, he avers, is not a cosy paradise inhabited by whimsical squires and philosophical craftsmen; it is characterised, rather, by brutal rapacity, sly animal cunning and orchidaceous vice."
