Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin, 1952. Boston, MA, Houghton Mifflin, 1952. First edition. 8vo. Black quarter cloth with gilt lettering on spine over gold-colored cloth covered boards, 114 pp. This reads like the double-distilled essence of all Marquand novels for a simple reason: Marquand has been a protagonist in his own books. It's all here: his youth, his fifteen-dollar-a-week days as a reporter for the Boston Transcript, and life as a struggling writer while married to the niece of the august, gentile Atlantic Monthly and finally success as a novelist. Near fine in a very good dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition. Quarter Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
