the cover design by Terence Loan is based on a photograph of the Maddermarket Theatre, Norwich, c.1930; "It is 1940 and Paul Grimmer, as awkward and confused as any adolescent can be, is plunged into the sophisticated and very adult world of the Maddermarket theatre. Here he comes under the spell of its renowned director, Nugent Monck. In A Play of Passion David Holbrook beautifully portrays the fierce intensity of adolescence in all its bewildered innocence, and his re-creation of the character of Nugent Monck is a triumph. Monck made his theatre, but saw himself as its servant, too: he loved the arts, and he loved young people, and had the rare capacity to open up each to the other. David Holbrook was born in Norwich in 1923." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 215 pages. no Dust Jacket as published.. previous owner's gift inscription on pre-title page. White titles spine.
