Book club edition. A 1981 reissuance of Graham Greene's highly-praised thriller, first published in 1938. The story is set in the English resort town of Brighton; the title is a reference to a popular hard candy of the same name sold there. It is the story of Pinkie, for whom, per the jacket flap, "Crime, in his dark mind, was a release so deep and satisfying that he had no need for drink or women or the love of his fellows." "Brighton Beach" was made into several movies, plays, a radio adaptation, and even a musical. --- In full tan cloth-covered boards with gilt-stamped spine titling. Simple dust jacket with cover & spine titling in brown & red. --- With prior owner's embossed circular stamp to title page, otherwise a tightly-bound, unmarked, sound copy. Jacket also in great shape and wrapped in removable archival mylar protector.; 12mo - 7 to 7-1/2 in. tall ; (8), 310 pages
