GREENE, Graham. Monsignor Quixote. London: The Bodley Head, 1982.

8vo. Original green cloth, lettered in gilt to spine; top edge stained green; dust-jacket by Michael Harvey; upper edge green; pp. [x], 11-220, [iv]; aside from light pushing to head, a fine copy, the jacket a little creased to edges and toned to spine, but very good nonetheless. Unclipped.
First UK edition. The BBC adapted this story for a TV movie which starred Alec Guinness. A pastiche of Don Quixote, with moments of comedy juxtaposed with reflection on matters such as life after a dictatorship, Communism, and the Catholic faith.
