About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for My Sister Eileen by McKenney, Ruth.

Description:

An interesting and attractive volume, with a compelling back story. Ruth McKenney's hit novel detailed the adventures of two young ladies who came to New York to test their talents in the Big Time, and became famous for a while. Ruth's sister, Eileen, was married to novelist Nathaniel West, and both were killed in a tragic auto collision when Eileen was 26. A brief obituary from the Washington Star of December 28 1940 is laid in, and it has left its shadow on the title page, along with a photo article on the play, which opened the week Eileen was killed. This copy is in attractive condition, considering its age. First edition stated, binding clean and tight, no chips, clips or marks but the DJ ($2.00 price tag on front flyleaf) has a small closed tear at the top and there are slight signs of wear at top and bottom of spine. Certainly rare in this condition. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Harcourt, Brace and Company 1939 (c.1938), New York, 1939. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+ dj. 10th printing. [light shelfwear, very slight bumping at a couple of corners, spine a little turned, slight dust-darkening to top edge; jacket shows a little edgewear and minor soiling, vertical crease in middle of spine, spine a little darkened]. The original stories (all of which had appeared in The New Yorker) chronicling the urban misadventures of two sisters from Ohio who share an apartment in Greenwich Village. The book was adapted for a popular Broadway play, and went on to spawn two film versions (1942 and, as a musical, 1955), a short-lived TV sitcom and the 1953 Broadway musical "Wonderful Town." (Rather oddly, the film and stage "musicalizations" were unrelated.) Eileen herself, tragically, didn't live to witness any of this property's long multi-media life, having been killed in a car crash along with husband Nathanael West in December 1940. Surprisingly hard to find in a non-Grosset & Dunlap (reprint) edition, especially jacketed. Ruth McKenney's work was the subject of an admiring reassessment by Laura Lippman in The New York Times of March 15, 2018. NOISBN. Seller Inventory # 15264

Book Description Harcourt, Brace & Co., New York, 1938. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 5th printing in bright orange cloth boards; very crisp and clean. Covered in the very scarce jacket with sunned spine, (though lettering is quite readable) and with a small chip at top of spine, affecting "Ruth". Photographic portrait of Ruth McKenney on rear panel, has some paper lift, otherwise this jacket is much better than usually found. A terrific copy of this uncommon title, that was the basis for a smash play and movie. Rare in jacket. Seller Inventory # 013172
