The Girls of Slender Means
New York: Knopf, 1963.
A beautiful copy of the first edition of one of Muriel Spark's most successful and characteristic novels, in a classic jacket of the period.
Genteel poverty in war-ravaged London forces a gaggle of young ladies to share a boarding house; their lives are recalled as not being as innocent as they seemed on the surface, "when all the nice people in England were poor, allowing for exceptions".
With jacket recommendations by W. H. Auden, John Updike and Evelyn Waugh, which can't be bad.
