The Wild Goose Chase. A novel.
London: Boriswood, 1937 - Octavo. Original light blue cloth, yellow lettered spine and front cover, lower edges untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Jacket spine toned, panels only a little soiled. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of Warner's first novel. "His Poems, published in that year [1937], made no great mark, and in later years verse was only a small part of his prolific output. But it was also in 1937 that there appeared his novel The Wild Goose Chase, written mainly in England before he left for Egypt, and this strikingly original work made an immediate impression. His tale of three brothers and their quest in an unnamed country for the wild goose, symbol of hope and personal regeneration, was rightly seen as akin to the work of Franz Kafka; but it drew also on elements of classical mythology, and even of fairy tale, in a manner genuinely new in English fiction" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]
