An attractive first edition/first printing in Fine condition in slightly tanned dust-jacket. From the collection of Betty Anderson, legendary art director of publisher Knopf in the late 20th century as evidenced by her (small and unobtrusive) inventory number on front paste down.

Dirk Bogarde's sparse, understated novel tells the story of Henry DeTamble, a successful doctor who is forced to confront the limits of his own sanity after a car accident leaves him unable to work. As he gradually loses touch with reality, DeTamble is forced to rely on the help of his wife, daughter, and friends, who must navigate the sometimes dangerous waters of his fragile state of mind.

An Orderly Man is a quietly powerful novel exploring the delicate balance between sanity and madness, the fragility of life and the bonds that tie us together. It is a story of hope and resilience, of the beauty and tragedy of human relationships.; 8vo.
