298 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). In this novel, Gordon Saunders, a Canadian professor lecturing at an American university one day finds himself "among hostile strangers. There they sat, his accusers, looking at him down the length of the table, and of half a lifetime in a room filled with the atmostphere of suspicion and hatred - the special atmosphere of Investigating Committees in the Fifties. Their questions concerned people he had known, and things he had done, in 1932 and 1933; certain people and certain things only, for their final and all-important question - his relationship, past and present, with the Communist Party." Tiny closed tear (archivally taped) at top corner of free rear endpaper, bump to top corner of boards with slight migration into adjacent few pages, slight bump at bottom corners, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny repaired tear in cloth at bottom of front hinge, small shallow bump on bottom edge of rear board, light browning to edges of text block.
