GLYDER, John

Rude Awakening

London: Herbert Jenkins, N.d. [1948]

8vo, pp. 251, 4pp. publisher's advertisements bound in at rear. Original orange boards, lettered in black to front panel and spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Light offsetting to endpapers, spine ends a little bumped, but a near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, (white) rear panel a little marked, wear to spine ends, top edge a little creased and edgeworn.

First edition. AUTHOR'S SIGNATURE LAID IN.

A nice copy of this comic novel -- a copy which has survived far better than the reputation of its author, who has been comprehensively forgotten. COPAC's listing of Glyder's work shows him to have been active between 1928 and 1949, and two films were made from his novels: The Compulsory Husband [1930] and The Compulsory Wife [1937]. Apart from that, nothing: Glyder's name has not troubled the scorers in any of the standard reference works.
