Carr who went on to write The Harpole Report and, most notably, A Month in the Country which was filmed in the 90s starring Kenneth Branagh. Cover and contents are both in good / very good, clean, bright and firm condition with some tanning to page block edges commensurate with age.

'In this revealing and haunting novel of service life, Flanders, a Yorkshireman, tells what happens in a single dry season on the coasts of wartime West Africa. .....engagingly written, with a deceptively light touch, this novel re-creates life on an R.A.F. station in an African backwater with impressive fidelity'.
