The Harder They Fall

New York: Random House, (1947).

Price: $50.00

Hardcover. First edition. Slightly cocked spine else near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket with short tears, toning, and rubbing. Author's second book. A scathing indictment of the manipulation of professional boxers, no less relevant today than it was fifty years ago. Basis for the powerful Mark Robson film in which Humphrey Bogart, in his final role, plays a cynical press agent who comes to realize the extent to which prizefighters are pawns of their managers and racketeers.
