The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit

by Sloan Wilson

Condition: No dust cover, grey cloth boards with raised stencil of man in hat and suit on front right cover, gold titles to spine. Book i/No dust jscket


Universally acclaimed when first published in 1955, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit captured the mood of a generation. It was a national bestseller that was made into an award-winning film, it was translated into twenty-six languages, and its title has become a permanent part of our cultural vocabulary. Today, it is more relevant than ever.Here is the story of Tom and Betsy Rath, a young couple with everything going for them: three healthy children, a nice home, a steady income. They have every reason to be happy, but for some reason they are not. Largely autobiographical based on the author's time spent as the assistant director of the U.S. National Citizen Commission for Public Schools, the novel was adapted into a film starring Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones just one year after its original publication.
