The Ungreen Park: The Diary of a Keeper - Gill Brason

London: The Bodley Head, 1978, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little age-toned otherwise a very well presented copy.

From the cover: “Two years ago Gill Brason opted out of the rat race, giving up a good job with an employment agency. Since then she has worked as a keeper in charge of three successive children’s playgrounds in London, each less salubrious than the one before, the last nothing more than a small patch of concrete fenced off from a building site. Abused by the snootier residents, teasingly propositioned by the building workers and others, even on one occasion physically attacked by a gang of ruffians, Gill Brason’s life on the parks was full of incident.”

Size: 8¾" x 5½". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 144 pages.
