André Deutsch [Andre Deutsch], 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

Originally published in Tokyo by Kodansha, 1986, this is the English translation of ‘Tatta hitori no hanran’. From the cover: “The time is 1969, the worldwide ‘year of rebellion’: the place, Japan. A middle aged ex-career civil servant, having refused to transfer to the Ministry of Defence on quasi-ideological grounds, is now working in an electrical company. Maruya has produced a comedy which at one level deals with serious political and social ideas and at another is very funny entertainment.”
