Greenwich: Gold Medal, 1961. First Edition. New. Item #181
First Printing. A Near Fine copy of Willeford's pseudonymous novel, a dark S&M affair. The spine is faintly slanted with a few glue ridges running down the center, and the yellow edgestaining is a touch uneven at the side of the textblock. Appears unread, and the kinky Bob Abbett cover does tend to leave a lasting impression. This is a Review Copy, with the original Gold Medal slip laid in. Published under the sole by-line of W. Franklin Sanders. In his files, Willeford had a manuscript of this novel called "Deliver Me From Dallas!" by "W. Franklin Sanders and Charles Willeford." Willeford's name is never mentioned on the Review Slip, though the publisher's description of Sanders sounds a whole lot like him. One of the less common Willeford paperback originals, especially so as a Review Copy.
