alphabetically by author

 

 

 

Listed below is my current stock in this subject, sorted in alphabetical order, by author. Please note that it is difficult to categorize some titles, which overlap different subjects; in these cases, the easiest procedure would be use the search box, which covers my entire stock. However, if searching for a particular title on this page only, the simplest method is to use "Control-F" to bring up the "Find" dialogue on screen. I have described the books as accurately as possible but will of course accept returns if a particular item is inadvertently not as described.

In a 1972 letter (which was inserted into a copy of the  American edition) Ambler describes in detail how this classic novel was conceived. "The Mask of D[imitrios] was started -- in the mind anyway --  during a night train journey from Paris to Marseille. I was travelling 3rd class on a very hard seat and sleep was impossible. So was reading by the  dim blue light provided. So I thought of a journey from Istanbul to Paris and drew a wiggly line in a notebook to remind me later. The journey, I  thought, should be a kind of odyssey and that the traveller should be a criminal. When dawn came at Avignon and I could see better I wrote down  the name 'Demetrius' spelling it then with 'e's and a 'u.' I also put a question mark as a precaution. Ideas evolved during sleepless nights rarely  survive the day that follows. I wrote the book in a Montparnasse hotel called the Liberia which was little better than a flop-house, but very cheap -- 50 cents a night at the 1938 rate of exchange -- though I then thought it rather expensive. However, the walls were thin and interesting  conversations could sometimes be heard through them. The 'masterful technique' you mention came painfully. Three times I decided to abandon the  project as rule-breaking chaos, unlikely to prove readable; but in the end arrogance triumphed. Besides I was getting old -- 29 if a day -- and it was  time I broke rules."       £30.00  Fiction
