CORRIE, James. Random Rivers. London, Regency Press, 1979.
8vo. Original illustrated glossy paper covered boards; pp.69; a very good copy.
First edition. A collection of angling stories for those "tired of books about corruption", "fed up with lurid covers" and those who wish to avoid "writing that relishes the revolting", says the blurb. Written by a disabled veteran who used the practice of angling to recover from severe shellshock, Random Rivers is a surreal and haunting sequence of fishing anecdotes, landscapes and extracts from nature poetry.
