1985 First Edition - Anthony Burgess

1985
A Response to 1984

Anthony Burgess


First edition of the Clockwork Orange author’s two-part “answer” to 1984. This tour-de-force begins by revisiting 1984 in a series of conversations, self-interviews and straightforward literary criticism, exploring the moral, political and physical world of George Orwell’s novel. The second half of this book features Anthony Burgess’s response, the brilliant 1985, an original, cacotopian novel. First U.S. Edition, hardback, in brick red boards, pp272. A collectible book.


Book in Fine condition (possibly unread); dust jacket is near-VG (small closed tear at head of spine, several small chips and onset of laminate peel in same area; some offsetting of cloth colour internally, generally a very smart appearance).
