310pp. Octavo [20.5 cm] Light green cloth covered boards with decorative gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The spine is a bit discolored, and the book is lightly rubbed and bumped along the edges of the spine and covers. There are numerous small, lightened spots, on the edges of the text block, not affecting the page margins. There are several open tears in the paper along the bottom edge of the front pastedown.
The main character makes a pact with a wealthy Australian entrepreneur and literary patron to whom he sells his soul in order to pursue his wish to be a writer.
