About This Item

New York: Red Star Press, 1933. Second Printing. Octavo (21cm). Original tan cloth boards, lettered in red on cover and spine; price-clipped dustjacket; 632pp. A few small losses to jacket extremities with some subsequent creasing, else a Near Fine copy in Very Good jacket just about free of toning. Socialist romance, described by Rideout as the "...only radical novel published in the thirties which was deliberately written as a romance...even to its stilted prose, an unrepresentative anachronism." Spiro/Marlen, a one-time leader of the Trotskyist Communist League of America, was also the author of the sensational anti-CP tract "Earl Browder: Communist or Tool of Wall Street" in 1932. HANNA 3308. RIDEOUT, p. 296. SEIDMAN M-191.
