First Printing. A Fine copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dustjacket that's a triffle rubbed at the crown of the spine. This is a Review Copy, with the publishers letter laid in. Polito has written nothing short of the authoritative biography of crime writer Jim Thompson, which won both a National Book Critics Circle Award and an Edgar Award for Best Critical/Biographical Work.
