Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Jules Furthman, Sincerely Thomas Wolfe, Nov 14, 1935". Jules Furthman (1888-1966) was an American magazine and newspaper writer, who later worked as a screenwriter, adapting a number of novels for Hollywood, including Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep and Ernest Hemingway's To Have and Have Not with William Faulkner in 1944. The short stories collected here were reviewed in The New York Times Book Review as "characteristic and excellent stories" that show "how remarkably controlled is Wolfe's superabundance and how remarkably successful is his excess" (24 November 1935).
