Odinokii begun. Rasskazy [A lone runner. Tales]
Izdatel’stvo TsK VLKSM «Molodaia gvardiia» 1963 - First edition of The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1959) in Russian, apparently Sillitoe’s first appearance in the language. Sillitoe was greatly interested in Communist Russia, visiting for the first time in April 1963, just months before this came out in the August. He published his account of the visit in Road to Volgograd (1964): ‘When I walk along the Kremlin wall my heart turns over at the sight of the red flag flying freely ’ (p. 16). Not in COPAC or OCLC. 8vo (198 × 125 mm), pp. 171, [5]; light marginal browning due to paper stock, short tear to final leaf, but still a very good copy in the original illustrated wrappers, slight wear at head. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
