The Moon's Our Home
Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1936 - First edition. Review copy with inserted review slip. Very near fine with paper clip mark on front endpapers where the review slip was originally attached;in attractive, very good or better dustwrapper with some rubbing and a modest chip on the spine and internal tape repair. A romantic comedy where a headstrong actress marries an adventurer on an impulse and they both try to work it out. Basis for the 1936 movie of the same name, starring Henry Fonda, Margaret Sullavan, and Beulah Bondi. Signed presentation from Baldwin to mystery writer Mignon Eberhart and her husband: "Mignon and Alan with much love from their Faith." The friendship between Baldwin and Eberhart is well documented, with Eberhart sometimes called mystery's Faith Baldwin. Eberhart dedicated her 1935 novel "The House On The Roof" to Baldwin and her companion, Gonnie. Eberhart is considered the founder of the modern romantic suspense novel and introduced female heroines, preceding Agatha Christie's Jane Marple. She was one of the leading female crime novelists in the United States and sometimes referred to as the American Agatha Christie. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
