Descripción

(3), 256 pages; Former owner's name on ffep, otherwise clean and tight in original blue cloth binding with gilt lettering, lettering faded at spine, minor lean. Preface by Edith Wharton. This is the first published novel by William Gerhardi, one of the most critically acclaimed English novelists of the 1920s. It draws on the author's experiences fighting the Bolsheviks in Russia, as well as his childhood visits to pre-revolutionary Russia. From Edith Wharton's Preface: "Mr Gerhardie's novel is extremely modern; but it has bulk and form, a recognisable orbit, and that promise of more to come that one always feel latent in the beginnings of the born novelist." Of this novel Seamus Sweeney says: "FUTILITY is Gerhardie at his simplest and most effective, as well as a book which saddens with the vastness of the promise not wholly fulfilled.".
