First edition first print hardback of FOR LOVE AND MONEY by Jonathan Raban and published by Collins Harvill in 1987. Signed by Raban on the title page.

The book is in near fine condition (black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with light foxing to the top page edges. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has light creasing to the edges of both covers, inner flaps and the head of the spine. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Jonathan Raban gave up teaching in 1969 to become a professional writer. For Love & Money is a record of nearly twenty years in the trade, the picaresque adventure story of a life in print: setting up shop as a writer; pubs; little magazines; hunting commissions for TV plays; travelling; writing journalism; book reviewing. It is frank about money and failure. It is absorbingly interesting about the aesthetic dilemmas of a writer who has always walked the tightrope between different genres.

Intertwined with this revealing and often very funny narrative is a wide selection of work previously unpublished in book form. The book also houses the best of Raban's literary criticism, including sparkling essays on favourite writers like Trollope, Evelyn Waugh and Robert Lowell.
