About this Item

Original publisher's cloth, in original dust-jacket; interior bright and clean. First edition of this dramatic novel, which contains what may quite possibly be the very first use of the term "paranoiac." "A paranoiac is a person who is badly out of joint with his surroundings. He cannot find his place in the band, but wants to play trombone on the drum. He can play trombone fluently, but not in tune, so he thinks the others are making discords to annoy him." Walton (1854-1941), a consulting neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital, was also the author of several other literary works, including Why worry?; The flower finder; Those nerves; and Calm yourself. BMC, XXVI, 628. Bookseller Inventory # 11622
