I read it a couple of years ago, having come across it by accident in a second hand bookshop on Ynys Mon (Anglesey for you Englishers...).

I did enjoy it, though it was not quite the Wyndhamesque classic I was hoping for. Good post-apocalypse stuff though, albeit dated. Definitely worth tracking down, and perhaps your first place to try is

'the world in winter' was an excellent reader not quite as good as 'the death of grass' but only marginally. i've just started his 'a wrinkle in the skin'
