A superior collector's copy of this scarce book in the original dust jacket. Screen Star Slaim: Cinema Murder Duplicated. SuzyPommier Death Follows Premiere. Paris, Jan. 5. Last night a vast audience attended the premiere of Jean Riviere's new cinema, "The Two Worlds,".The beautiful star herself was present, escorted by a young man known as her infatuated protector of the moment. .Then came the masterly but savage scene, the climax, which showed the heroine strangled in her bath by a faithless lover." Emmanuel Bove was born Emmanuel Bobovnikoff in 1898 in Paris to a Russian father and a Luxembourgish mother. He studied at the Ecole alsacienne and the lycée Calvin de Genève. At the age of 14, he decided to become a novelist. In 1915, he was sent to boarding school in England, where he completed his education.In 1921, he married Suzanne Vallois and moved to the suburbs of Vienna. There he began his writing career, publishing numerous popular novels under the pseudonym Jean Vallois. He returned to Paris in 1922 and worked as a journalist. His work came to the attention of Colette, who helped him publish his first novel under his own name, Mes amis (My Friends) in 1924. The novel became a success and he consistently published until the The Second World War, winning the Prix Figuière in 1928. First Edition with matching dates of 1934 on the title and copyright pages; with "Published January, 1934" on the copyright page. Bookseller Inventory # 197
