“TREVOR, William” — [COX, William Trevor, 1928-2016] :  MISS GOMEZ AND THE BRETHREN.

“TREVOR, William” — [COX, William Trevor, 1928-2016] : MISS GOMEZ AND THE BRETHREN.

London : Bodley Head, (1971). First edition. “A novel about obsession, about a pervading fear of reality, and the fantasies that are invited in their place” (publisher’s blurb) — “William Trevor’s best book yet. Poor Miss Gomez stepped from her Jamaican orphanage to serve behind the counter in Bourne & Hollingsworth, then to the top floor of a Soho brothel” (Victoria Brittain in the Illustrated London News, 1st December 1971).
Post 8vo (21cm). (292)pp. Original lavender boards, lettered in gilt; just lightly bruised; some spotting of top edge, but a very good and sound copy in the Michael Harvey dust-jacket — the jacket very good, clean and unworn.
