WINTER, J. Keith

Other Man's Saucer

New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co., 1930

8vo, pp. 308. Original black three-quarter boards, yellow spine lettered in black. Illustrated endpapers. Lacking the dustwrapper. Some edgewear to boards, but a well preserved copy.

First US edition, published in the same year as the UK edition.

The author's first novel, published when he was twenty-four, and set in Oxford, where it was written while Winter was an undergraduate there. Before university, Winter had had a brief career as a prep school teacher -- a career which closed to him on publication of this gay-themed novel. As a result he turned instead to the stage, and later became a screenwriter in Hollywood. In 1948 he co-wrote the script for The Red Shoes with the film's producer, Emeric Pressburger.

Other Man's Saucer is no. 50 in Anthony Slide's Lost Gay Novels: A Reference Guide to Fifty Works from the First Half of the Twentieth Century (Routledge, 2003).
