THE SHEIKH AND THE DUSTBIN AND OTHER McAUSLAN STORIES., Fraser, George MacDonald.  Cover illustration by Quentin Blake.

Author Name    Fraser, George MacDonald. Cover illustration by Quentin Blake.

Title   THE SHEIKH AND THE DUSTBIN AND OTHER McAUSLAN STORIES.

Publisher    Collins Harvill, London, 1988, 1st edition.

Seller ID   22275

189 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 000222707X Export edition, without price on dust jacket flap. Continues the career of "The Dirtiest Soldier in the World", Private McAuslan, first seen in "The General Danced at Dawn" and th en in "McAuslan in the Rough". In these pages "he appears as the unlikeliest of batmen to his long-suffering protector and persecutor, Lieutenant Dand MacNeill, as guardroom philosopher and adviser to the leader of the Riff Rebellion, as t r e n c h a n t commentator on Scotland's World Cup performance, and even as Lance-Corporal McAuslan, the Mad Tyrant of Three Section. Whether map-reading his erratic way through the Sahara by night, confronting mobs of Arab rioter ('Mither o' Goa d! Wu ll y e lo ok at yon!), or falling hapless victim to the plots of poachers and illicit distillers in the wilds of darkest Perthshire, McAuslan's talent for comic catastrophe is as sure as ever, waking happy memories of an Army life and chara cte r s t hat ar e fas t f a ding away." Faint cigarette odor, light soiling to fore-edge of textblock. Dust jacket has minor edge wear - mainly at top of hinges, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good
