Reserve Ask us a question

First edition, first printing, in uncommonly bright condition. Faulkner began work on what would become Pylon as soon as he returned from a trip to New Orleans to see the Pan-American air races two months after he received his pilot's license. The novel reflects "all the enthusiasm and fascination for aeronautica of the newly-fledged pilot" (Harrison, p. 153).
