Deadlier than the Male

New York: Duell 1942, Sloan and Pearce. First Edition. Copy belonging to noted crime author Dorothy B. Hughes, author of "In a Lonely Place" and "Ride the Pink Horse," with her name in autograph pencil on the front endpaper. Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Jacket is lightly nicked at the corners, with a touch of toning at the edges of the rear panel, else exceptionally nice. Basis for the notable 1947 film noir, "Born to Kill," directed by Robert Wise and starring Claire Trevor, Lawrence Tierney and Walter Slezak. A great association between two authors whose work helped define hard-boiled fiction in its maturity and provided source material for some of the most important noir films of the 1940s and 1950s. Full provenance available. [Book #111860]
