Éditeur : Jonathan Cape, London
Date d'édition : 1962
Reliure : Hardcover
FIRST EDITIONS, 3 vols., 8vo, pp. 189, ; 195, ; 190. Original boards (red, yellow, and blue respectively), spines lettered in gilt ('Italy' in silver), top edges stained (light blue, black, dark blue), dustjackets. A little spotting to fore-edges. Dustjackets slightly dusty with a touch of wear to ends of backstrip panels and flap folds, a couple of short edge-tears, spines a little cocked. The Passion Flower Hotel was a sensational bestseller when first published, the scandalous story of a group of girls who open a brothel in their boarding school - the author purportedly a schoolgirl herself. Two sequels were completed, along with a West End musical adaptation and in 1978 a film (starring Nastassja Kinski), but a gossip-column revelation of the author's true identity ('Bald adman is Rosalind Erskine') put a sizeable dent in the sales. Roger Longrigg (1929-2000) was born in Edinburgh but educated in England, where he briefly worked in advertising before turning to full-time writing. He published over 50 novels under multiple pseudonyms (Erskine, Ivor Drummond, Laura Black, Frank Parrish, etc.), but none reached the same level of public attention as this trilogy, which is now rather scarce to find complete in first editions.
