Notes

First edition, first printing, fine presentation from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "For Ring Lardner what a sap I'd be to try to tell you what I think of you and your work - you know... Gene Fowler April 3, 1930". A major association. Fowler met Lardner when the two men joined Damon Runyon as writers on Hearst's paper The American. Trumpet in the Dust is the quasi-autobiographical story of a newspaperman named Gordon Dole. It charts his life from his birth through his first attempts to become a published writer through to his inevitable demise.
