1930. Louis Bromfield attained worldwide acclaim in the 1920s as the author of Early Autumn, his third novel and winner of the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. At age 29, Bromfield was regarded as one of America's most promising young novelists, compared to the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. His novels were among the first adapted for feature-length sound films. This is the story of the Towners, an adulterous couple, who survive a harrowing 24 Hours in which Jim Towner's lover, Rosie Duggan, manages to get bumped off by her maniacal husband Toni Bruzzi. A definite page turner. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
