The Killer Inside Me
NY, Lion, (1952). A paperback original -- one of the classic noir novels of the postwar period. Printed information on the rear cover indicates that the publisher submitted this title for consideration for the National Book Award in 1952, the third year that award was given out. Thompson, as a pulp fiction writer, had no chance of being considered for the award, but his reputation today far outstrips that which he enjoyed in 1952. Spine slanted, creasing to covers, minor foxing to page edges. A very good copy. [#034905] SOLD
