Storey, Radcliffe.

Storey, David. Radcliffe. First Edition. London, Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd., 1963. 20.4cm x 13.6cm. 376 pages. Original Hardcover with original illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent, near Fine condition with only minor signs of external wear.

The central theme of this book explores in depth a relationship of exceptional intensity between two men- Leonard Radcliffe, sensitive, dark, introspective, the last product of a once-aristocratic family; and Victor Tolson, married with two children, a demonic creature of massive proportions. Each, incomplete iin himself, finds in the other a complementary and compulsive need- Tolson, in his desire to dominate and possess Leonard's remarkable nature; and Leonard, because he recognises himself in Tolson everything that he is not, a man of irresistable strength, effectiveness, beauty and evil. The relationship, which at first finds tentative expression in moods of gentleness and cruelty, grandually reaches a pitch which can only end in some absolute and final confrontation. Across a vast landscape of moors and valleys, of dark rivers and towns, the two figures struggle for possession of each other, destroying and crushing all around them. The final scenes, to which the story rises like a tide, are of an overwhelming horror and violence. David Storey, who is thirty years old, is one of the most important novelists of his generation.
