The Postman Always Rings Twice.
A stunning copy of a truly rare first edition with the original dust jacket.
First published in 1934 and banned in Boston for its explosive mixture of violence and eroticism, The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic of the roman noir.
This book established James M. Cain as a major novelist with an unsparing vision of America’s bleak underside, and was acknowledged by Albert Camus as the model for The Stranger.
First Edition, first impression. Very good to VG+ condition. First issue dust jacket with the publishers announcement in red printed to the front flap and as called for the titles on the back panel.
Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1934.
