GREENE, Graham May We Borrow Your Husband and Other Comedies of the Sexual Life

Bodley Head, 1967.

First edition. Number 17 of 500 copies specially bound and signed by Greene. Author's presentation copy, further inscribed to the title page to John and Gillian Sutro, "For John + Gillian with love from an exile from shepherd's pie + friendship, but love grows in exile. Graham". Original green cloth over patterned paper covered boards in publisher's clear glassine. A fine copy.

A fine association copy, inscribed by Greene to some of his closest friends in later life. John Sutro was a film producer and Gillian, a fashion journalist, described by Nancy Mitford as "one of the ten best dressed women in England", combined film and fashion. Sutro had known Evelyn Waugh at Oxford and his literary circle included Arthur Koestler, Christopher Sykes, John Sparrow and Jean Cocteau. The Sutros were introduced to Greene in the 1950 and became close friends. They were near neighbours in Antibes and each corresponded independently with him, Gillian helping him through his tumultuous affair with Yvette Cloetta.
