Treadmill to Oblivion Black embossed publisher's cloth, yellow type on spine - 1954

Fred Allen's radio show, a 1940s precursor to television shows commenting on the week's news, was one of the most popular of the time. This book is an autobiographical tale from Allen's early days in radio to national fame with Allen's Alley, the nucleus of his show. The copy is lacking a dust cover, but otherwise in almost perfect shape aside from almost unnoticeable staining on the front cover. The four drawings by Al Hirshfield are a treasure themselves.
