New York. E. P. Dutton. 1985. First edition. Hardcover. Book condition: Fine. Dust jacket: Fine. 377pp. (ill. in b/w).
A collection of twenty-six stories from two published collections as well as unpublished works from Welch's archives. Despite an all too brief and tragic life, Denton Welch has left behind a fresh and formidable body of work. Robert Phillips brings together all the stories published in Welch's native England and surfaces seven unpublished tales from obscurity. In all of them, Welch's literary sensibility comes forcefully through with flashes of perverse humor and genuine innocence.
