Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1959. First Edition, advance copy. First Edition with advance bookseller slip on front pastedown.
Drury's first novel, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and basis for the 1962 Otto Preminger film with ensemble cast featuring Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton, Don Murray, Walter Pidgeon, Peter Lawford, Gene Tierney, Franchot Tone, Lew Ayres, Burgess Meredith, Eddie Hodges, Paul Ford, George Grizzard, Inga Swenson, Betty White and others.
A desirable copy despite its flaws given the significantly limited advance release. About very good a bit loose with some staining to pastedowns in an about very good dust jacket with some chipping and staining. Item #84
