Fontana 1978 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Fontana 1978 edition, ISBN: 0006142060. Pages are clean and unmarked, fairly heavy age tanning to pages and covers. One split at spine but no loose pages. Cover has light creasing and light edgewear, light soiling bottom edge of pages. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; Review: "....The Mask of Dimitrios is a sombre romp through England, Istanbul and most of the Levant, coming full circle in that city created for novelists, Paris. Dimitrios is a master spy but his adversary and pursuer, bored Oxford don and crime writer Latimer's investigations bring to light the creation and perfection of Dimitrios. It is the career of Dimitrios which forms the core of the book, closing with an eerily silent, bloody coda. What is so remarkable about that book is that every character is one we would want to meet sometime in a humdrum life, every locale the perfect antithesis of the cloistered, the mundane and the routine. It is everyman's fantasized adventure remarkably executed by everyman, the bookish, inwardly challenged, cynical Mr. Latimer...." [135-osl]
