Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Ed Gorman who gave me a write-up better than I deserved. William Campbell Gault" A nice example of the author's first novel, which won the 1953 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel. Ed Gorman (1941-2016) was a writer, editor and anthologist. He was one of the founders of Mystery Scene magazine, being editor and publisher until 2002. In 2008, Gorman wrote that William Campbell Gault "was a compelling short story writer who looked at the world honestly if sardonically and found a good deal of it to be depressingly hilarious. His various takes on the culture of Fifties Southern California hold up well today." He found Gault's Don't Cry for Me to be a "remarkable crime novel.
