'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy': On Where Eagles Dare [signed, hardback copy]

£24.99

Product description

From the acclaimed writer and critic Geoff Dyer, an extremely funny scene-by-scene analysis of 'Where Eagles Dare' - published to coincide with the film's 50th anniversary. The author has loved the film since childhood, and this comic, in-depth analysis is carried out with huge affection, as well as a razor-sharp eye. For fans of the film, this book will be the ultimate tribute.

Geoff Dyer (b. 1958) is an English writer, author of a number of novels and non-fiction titles, which have won literary awards and been translated into 24 languages. Kathryn Schulz, writing in New York, described him as "one of our greatest living critics, not of the arts but of life itself, and one of our most original writers".

Ours is a 1st edition, 1st printing copy of a special hardback edition, without a jacket (as issued), and rarer than the paperback original. Bound in green cloth with gilt title and mattock motif on the front, gilt title on spine, and a gilt paragraph describing the contents on the back, it shows no external signs of wear or use. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright; author's signature on title page.
