What Makes Sammy Run?

New York: Random House, (1941).

Price: $275.00

Hardcover. Early reprint. Fine in a very attractive, very good plus, price-clipped second issue dustwrapper with a couple of shallow chips and tears, mostly at the crown. The story of Sammy Glick, who leaves a trail of wrecked careers and lives as he struggles to reach the top in Hollywood. Curiously, one of the most influential novels ever written about the movie world, and one of the author’s only books that hasn’t (yet) been made into a film. A lovely copy of a scarce early reprint.
