Inscribed to Hilary Gerrard. Presentation copy inscribed to Hilary Gerrard, Ringo Starr's manager for over thirty years and a director of the Beatles company Apple Corps.: 'To Hilary – / with warm regards, in appreciation / of your regard for my work – / Dave Heath'.

Dave Heath's reputation largely rests on this book, in which he reflects and responds to the alienation that was particularly prevalent in post-war North American society. It was published in 1965, but most of the photographs were taken earlier, including several that he made in Korea in 1953 while serving in the US Army. Heath briefly studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and was strongly influenced by W. Eugene Smith, dedicating A Dialogue with Solitude to him.
