The first biography of Malcolm Saville written.

Here is the definitive account of the author's life and writing. Mark follows Saville's career, linking personal and professional detail and scattering quotes from publicity material and criticisms like confetti !

A thoroughly edifying read, and fascinatingly leaves the odd mystery to ponder on.
There are illustrations of rare ephemera; quotes from his letters and an account of the founding of the Malcolm Saville Society as well as a full (as far as we know) bibliography.

First Edition:
hardback, 155x220mm; blue cloth; silver blocking along spine and front board; 208pp; index; illustrated with black and white photographs, drawings etc; preface by Robin Saville; dustwrapper predominantly blue with b/w photograph of a group of children around tree stump; ISBN 0-9528059-3-6; cp 17.99

[The book is still (Aug 2002) in print and obtainable from Mark, via the Society site (see 'Links' above)]
