OIL! A Novel
Published by the Author, Long Beach Calif. 1927 - Bound in tan printed wraps with title and promotional description on front, previous works from Sinclair with prices on rear, spine blank. 7 1/2" X 5", 527pp plus 9 pages of ads at rear. Light chipping and rubbing at edges, front joint cracking at spine on the exterior, but not coming loose. A very good copy of this fairly fragile work. Another of this authors honest and critical looks at the disenfranchised ,business, success and the successfull, in The United States. Sinclair went on to receive the Nobel Prize (1930) for Literature, the first United States writer to do so. Evidently originally self published as the title page says, Lewis must have been testing his own capatalistic power in the book business. This novel went on to become the inspiration for the Daniel Day Lewis classic 2007 film "There will be Blood". [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
