1 Roth, Philip I Married a Communist
Boston, MA, U.S.A. Houghton Mifflin 1998 0395933463 / 9780395933466 First Edition Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Gray endpapers. 323pps. First edition, first printing. There is a small remainder dot on the bottom edge of the textblock, otherwise flawless: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is price-clipped; no other flaws. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page.

"Radio actor Iron Rinn (born Ira Ringold) is a big Newark roughneck blighted by a brutal personal secret from which he is perpetually in flight. An idealistic Communist, a self-educated ditchdigger turned popular performer, a six-foot six-inch Abe Lincoln look-alike, he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent-film star, the exquisite Eve Frame (born Chava Fromkin). Their marriage evolves from a glamorous, romantic idyll into a dispiriting soap opera of tears and treachery. And with Eve's dramatic revelation to the gossip columnist Bryden Grant of her husband's life of 'espionage' for the Soviet Union, the relationship enlarges from private drama into national scandal. Set in the heart of the McCarthy era, the story of Iron Rinn's denunciation and disgrace brings to harrowing life the human drama that was central to the nation's political tribulations in the dark years of betrayal, the blacklist, and naming names. 'I Married a Communist' is an American tragedy as only Philip Roth can conceive one -- fierce and funny, eloquently rendered, and politically accurate."
