1 Jones, James Some Came Running
New York Scribner's 1957 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in red cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in black. Octavo. 1266pps. First printing (Scribner's A.10-57). There is modest rubbing wear to the cloth at the spine-ends. Also, a previous owner's name is neatly penned in the upper corner of the front pastedown and a price and a date are penned in the upper corner of the rear pastedown. Faint smudging to the fore-edge. Otherwise clean, bright, and soundly bound. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has shallow chipping at the spine-ends and light touches of rubbing and soiling to the rear panel. A nice, collector's-quality copy, colorfully jacketed. ".The story takes place in the Wabash Valley of Southern Illinois -- largely in a town called Parkman. Four years pass during the course of it, the four years of peace imprisoned between World War II and Korea. There are at least a dozen major characters in 'Some Came Running,' and many more secondary ones; but two brothers, Dave and Frank Hirsh, stand central. A rebel, a wanderer, a writer who has given up writing, Dave Hirsh has just returned to town after years away; while his brother Frank has risen steadily in Parkman, a shrewd businessman with a driving need for admiration and affection. The contrasted, conflicting lives of the Hirsh brothers provide the core of the narrative, but 'Some Came Running' contains enormously more. As the reader proceeds through this huge novel, he becomes increasingly aware of a central theme. It concerns illusion -- the gaping difference between what man thinks he is doing and what he is actually doing, between one man's conception of reality and another man's."
