Description:
New York: Rinehart & Company, 1948. First Edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in a Fine dust jacket; extremely uncommon in this condition. Rear end paper browned, dust jacket with slightest age toning, contemporary owner's name on the front end paper. Mailer's first novel, a masterful saga of the Second World War. Mailer wrote the novel while studying in Paris, and based much of it on his own experiences serving in the Pacific. The book was not only well reviewed but extremely popular - and spent over 60 weeks on the New York Times' bestseller list. It would also mark the beginning of an illustrious career for one of America's foremost authors. The Naked and the Dead appears on Modern Library's list of the 100 best English language novels of the 20th century. "...it bears witness to a new and significant talent among American novelists." (Contemporary New York Times review) Raoul Walsh directed the 1958 film of the same name starring Aldo Ray, Cliff Robertson and Raymond Massey. Fine in… Read more

Near fine in a very good first issue price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to the extremities. Jacket design by Karov. Norman Mailer claimed to have four books on his desk while he wrote The Naked and the Dead: Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, Wolfe's Of Time and the River, Dos Passos' U.S.A. and Farrell's Studs Lonigan.
