New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. Very Good+. 1942. Early printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . (dark blue cloth; no dust jacket) [solid copy, nice and square, light browning to page edges, some wear to bottom edge, faint stain on rear cover]. John Ashbery, when this novel was reprinted in the 1990s, called it "a scathing and hilarious study of cynical New Yorkers stalking each other for various selfish ends, against a marvelously atmospheric backdrop of the city in the months just before America's entry into World War II." [Note that this lacks the Scribner's "A," and is thus not the first edition -- although contemporary hardcover printings of any of Powell's novels are pretty scarce these days, since her "rediscovery."] . (Inventory #: 13319)
