Random House, NY [Modern Library], 1953. Hardcover. Good/Good. The Pulitzer Prize winning novel began in the form of a play in which the main character would be "a man whose personal motivation had been, in one case, idealistic, who in many ways was to serve the cause of social betterment, but who was corrupted by power..." [Warren, Introduction] The play evolved into a novel and the character into Willie Stark, and his ultimate assassination, that loosely echoed Governor Huey Long of Louisiana whose life also ended with assassination in 1935. The book became the author's most well-known work and an American classic. Chipping to the dust jacket. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST THUS.
