Item Number: 96589
New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Hass, Inc, 1935.
First edition of Faulkner’s explosive novel about a group of Southern barnstormers. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and wear.
A novel at once sympathetic and explosive, Faulkner's Pylon is inhabited by characters still strange to the world today - a reckless and indomitable group of barnstormers performing in an unconventional flying circus. Set in a fictionalized version of New Orleans, the novel became the basis for the sensational 1957 film 'The Tarnished Angels' starring Rock Hudson, Robert Slack, and Dorothy Malone.
