As is the case with many of the books in this series, this book is illustrated by Henry J. Ford.

Title: The Doctor Is Sick
Author: Anthony Burgess
Publisher: Heinemann
City: London
Year: 1960
Printing Information: First Edition
Binding Style: Hardcover
Pagination: 261 pages
Width: 5.25" Height: 7.75"
Description: This is a first edition of a novel which, according to his autobiography, Burgess composed the book in just six weeks. He wrote it after his return to England from Malaya in a burst of literary activity that also produced "Devil of a State," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Right to an Answer" and several other works.

The "doctor" of the title is Edwin Spindrift, Ph.D., an unhappily married professor of linguistics who has been sent home from Burma to England suffering from a mysterious brain ailment. While Edwin is confined to a neurological ward, undergoing a battery of diagnostic tests, Mrs. Spindrift amuses herself with some disreputable new friends at the surrounding pubs. Sometimes, to Edwin's distress, she sends these friends to keep her husband company during visiting hours, rather than come herself. Most of the novel is a dream sequence: while anesthetized for brain surgery, Edwin's anxiety over his wife and the company she keeps turns into a slightly surrealistic fantasy in which Edwin leaves the hospital and encounters his wife's friends, with whom he has various adventures.

Condition: Volume and dust jacket are in excellent condition. Dust jacket is in mylar cover.
