About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1937. First Edition; rare collectible volume. 8vo size brown clothbound hardcover with orange titles on spine and front cover; 315 pages. Firmly bound. Author Jessie Fenton tells the fictionalized story of Lonny, a teenage boy gone bad, from his petty thievery in his hometown to his hopping a freight train and befriending a man who teaches him to pass bogus check and steal cars within hours of their meeting. Lonny ends up in reform school, becomes a hardened criminal and kills a man during a bank robbery. He dies in the electric chair at Sing Sing. We find the book has some of that classic film noir vibe. Dusty top, light wear or soil to cover and spine; some fingermarks on cover. Pages are toned; there is some light tanning to the inside covers. Thanks for shopping with us. 100% of your purchase benefits charity and supports literacy and life-long learning. . First. Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
