Although admired by fellow writers like E. M. Forster, Henry Green and William Faulkner and winning comparisons with Joseph Conrad and Dostoyevsky, James Hanley is not as well known as he should be. Without doubt, he was one of the major British writers of the twentieth-century.’ The Secret Journey is the second in the Furys five volume saga. Again, Fanny Fury, the mother of the Liverpool Irish family, is the dominant character. She has fallen on such hard times she is forced to borrow a few pounds from a moneylender; her debt accumulates, and gradually the whole of the Fury family become caught in the net. This is the main theme of the book but much else happens besides.  First edition.  Housed in a stunning dust-wrapper designed by Harold Jones.  No underlining, highlighting or inscriptions.  Binding strong.  Pages clean.  A few little marks to jacket, otherwise near fine.
