An excellent copy, Near Fine (topstain moderately faded, darkening to inner edges of paste downs from binder's glue, small smudge to bottom edge); vibrant jacket, presenting as Fine after minor expert restoration (involving none of the lettering) to several nicks and short tears. Hanna 2287. "Shortly after arriving in Hollywood [in 1931], McCoy began work on a story about a marathon dance. It began as a short story, became a screen treatment, and evolved into a novel. Rejected by the studios, it was published under the title They Shoot Horses, Don' t They? It was not a commercial success, reportedly selling three thousand copies. And it provoked a wide and varied response among contemporary reviewers in America. . . . [but] enjoyed much greater success in Europe, especially France. It was translated in the forties and by 1947 McCoy was regarded there as among the great writers of American fiction." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.
