Give Me Your Answer, Do, by Peter Marchant

£15.99

Product description

Give Me Your Answer, Do
Peter Marchant
1960

At S1, Margaret Finlay has achieved success. She has a good secretarial job in the city, a beautiful sports bicycle, and a one room flatlet furnished entirely to her taste. She need depend on no one. Yet occasionally, most unreasonably, she finds herself a little depressed. The nattering of her colleagues in the typists' room gets on her nerves, and, especially their smug assumption that Margarets' life is devoid of romance. One fine morning, exasperated with all the bragging about dates and forthcoming marriages, Margaret lets fly about her long and beautiful friendship with Bradshaw, her dream pony. Her story causes a sensation in the typists' room far more dramatic than she could have possibly expected.

No dust jacket. Headband slightly bent. Several pages at the beginning and end are marked, writing is not affected by this. Good spine and board. No pages are missing. Other than an old price, the Interior is free of inscription.
