Borstal Boy

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1959. First American Edition. Fine in a very good dust jacket with some chips. Presentation copy to his New York publicist, “To Abner, who created the New York version of Brendan Behan 13 ix 60.” Behan, almost from his first step ashore, took to New York, and New York embraced him in turn. Other than the later Brendan Behan’s Island, which is often found signed by Behan and the illustrator, his inscribed books are uncommon.
