Whitey: The Playboy of "Queer People" Runs Riot in Manhattan
Hardcover "Second Printing" (stated)
by Graham, Carroll and Garrett
New York: Grosset & Dunlap. Very Good in Good+ dj. (c.1931). Reprint. Hardcover "Second Printing" (stated). NOISBN . [moderate shelfwear and light soiling to bottom edge, slight fraying to cloth at top of spine; jacket shows wear at extremities, 2-inch split at bottom front hinge, short closed tear and associated creasing at bottom of front panel, short L-shaped tear at top front hinge]. The middle book in the "Whitey Trilogy" (which nobody actually calls it) -- following the notorious "Queer People" (1930) and preceding "Kings Back to Back" (1932) -- in which the amoral (sorry, irrepressible) ex-newspaperman and booze-hound hits the Big Apple. "His boudoir and other exploits -- including the management of a speakeasy in Harlem -- bring him into conflict with the participants in half a dozen underworld rackets." "Queer People," which went through multiple printings (including a "rediscovery" in the 1970s) and has earned a permanent spot on the list of most outre Hollywood novels of the day, is an easy enough book to find; not so the other two "Whitey" adventures, which as far as I know were never even issued in paperback. .
