Comments

The author's first published novel, a story of tangled love affairs between a group of New Yorkers, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War and Sino-Japanese War. The novel received favorable enough reviews to encourage Goodis to leave his job at an advertising agency and move to New York to pursue writing full-time. A scarce title in jacket, and one which to date has not been reprinted.
