A LONG COOL DAY IN HELL., Kersh, Gerald.

Author Name    Kersh, Gerald.

Title   A LONG COOL DAY IN HELL.

Publisher    Heinemann, London, 1965, first edition.

Seller ID   25610

163 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Lily Star Clarke is a veritable Little Snowdrop, as innocently sweet as can be. Yet it was she who ran down Louie Cagliaro and broke the story that killed him. And she it is who now sets out to crack the mystery of the reluctant millionaire, E. Vere Reeve. For years this enigmatic figure has lived as a recluse, protected from the Press and public by the most efficient security systems human ingenuity can devise. Nobody knows the secret of his millions; nobody knows anything about his personality or habits. Few have even seen him. Yet Lily Star Clarke has a limpid candour which tempts people to confide in her, and, armed with only this and her own transparent beauty, she takes up the millionaire's fantastic trail. This characteristic and nightmarish Kershian fable has all the snap and tang of his sardonic wit and brilliant invention." Book is slightly cocked, previous owner's name stamp at top of both pastedowns slight dust soiling on top of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, several tiny edge tears - some with creases, crease at top edge of rear panel. Very Good/Very Good
