    Default The Wasp Factory - The Times Review

    Can anyone let me know which edition of The Times carried the infamous "rubbish" review of The Wasp Factory?

    Are you after the paper then, not the book?

    Yep, thanks for the reply.

    I have a signed copy of the book. In the dedication Iain refers to The Times review so I would like a copy of the paper to complete the collection.

    Thanks DaveH

    It says:

    "To John from Iain Rubbish Banks" with an arrow a hand written "(The Times)" underneath.

    It's a first edition I've just got from 'The John'.
