They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1935.


First edition. Gift inscription hidden by the front flap, and a little foxing to the boards, a near fine copy in very near fine dustwrapper with a little rubbing at the folds. Signed by the author. A lovely copy of the author's first book, a hardboiled Depression-era classic, basis for the Sydney Pollack film with Jane Fonda, Michael Sarrazin, Susannah York, and Gig Young (who won an Oscar for his role as the dance marathon promoter).
