THE PRICE OF COAL (Second Impression Before Publication)
Hines, Barry      
ISBN: 0718117638
Michael Joseph London 1979 First Edition. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Hardcover and Dustjacket 170pp. Book clean and square. Bright gilt title over lightly bumped spine. Plain green boards trivially bumped only. Text-block unmarked. Pictorially-illustrated (with author portrait on rear panel), loose-plastic protected dustjacket minimally edgeworn, and colour-faded on spine, else very good. This 'documentary novel' of British colliery life was developed from two of the author's television films, 'Meet the People', and 'Back to Reality'. It explores the common bond and cameraderie the miners share against officialdom, and mortal danger, but lightened by shared jokes, sports, and family ties. The much-praised dramatist/novelist Barry Hines has lived much of his life in a Yorkshire mining town and has a strong affinity to the mining environment. He was born in 1939.
