Complete with original pictorial dust jacket (Very slightly creased and very slightly worn near the top and bottom of the spine). Provenance:- This copy was acquired from the descendants of Tony Hoolahan Q.C., a prominent libel lawyer who successfully prosecuted Private Eye, (represented by John Mortimer of Rumpole fame) on behalf of Desmond Wilcox (married to Esther Rantzen of "That's Life" fame) in 1982. Tony had been a colleague at the Bar and a close friend of Jane Gardam and her husband, David who spent much of his career working abroad and specialising in construction cases, exactly like Filth ("but there," Gardam says firmly, "the similarity stops"). "Old Filth" is a highly acclaimed portrait of the life and times of international lawyer Sir Edward Feathers, aka Old Filth, which was shortlisted for the Orange prize in 2005. After the publication of Old Filth, Gardam was invited to dinner at the Inner Temple "not with my husband but on my own account", she says proudly and was amused to look around her and see "nobody like Filth at all he was an imaginary creature".
