MCEVOY, J. P.
First edition, first printing of the first of McEvoy’s novels to feature Dixie Dugan, a Brooklyn-born showgirl who conquers Broadway and Hollywood, and who was the central character in several films. McEvoy is also known for his plays and novels that were adapted into films for W. C. Fields. A very attractive copy of a title that is scarce in the jacket.
