Faber & Faber, London, 2007. First edition. Book condition: fine and unread. Dust jacket: very good. Unclipped and with minor edge wear only. Borders' price sticker to rear.A fascinatingly rich and entirely original study of why many of the greatest authors of English literature chose to publish their work anonymously. From the sixteenth century to the present day, from Edmund Spenser to Primary Colors, John Mullan explores how the disguises of writers were first used and eventually penetrated, how anonymity teased readers and bamboozled critics. With great wit and lucidity, Anonymity presents a new and engaging way of enjoying English literature.
