The Unquiet Grave: A Word Cycle by Palinurus
Hamish Hamilton London: Hamish Hamilton. (1955). Reprint. Foxing to the endpapers, and the foredge darkened, a presentable, very good copy in an age-toned, very good or better dustwrapper. Inscribed by author Budd Schulberg to Gloria (Mosolino) Jones, wife of James Jones, a year after she and Jones were married: "Mos -- with love to you and Jim from someone who wants something from you: friendship. Bud. London 21 May 58." A splendid association: Schulberg introduced Jones to the beautiful Gloria who Schulberg had also dated, when Jones expressed his interest to Schulberg in meeting a girl who looked like Marilyn Monroe. After graduating from Syracuse University, Mosolino became an actress, and was the stand-in for Monroe in The Seven-Year Itch. During her thirty year marriage to James Jones, Mosolino was a celebrated hostess of the literati in Paris and later the Hamptons. In the 1998 film A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries, based on an autobiographical memoir by her daughter, Mosolino was played by Barbara Hershey. In an amazing display of candor, Mosolino described herself -- as related in the MacShane biography of Jones -- as "a writer-f---ker." .
