Test Tube Baby
New York: Godwin, Publishers. Good. 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [ex-rental library book, marked only with stamped library name on both endpapers ("Property of Green Tree Library"), moderate external wear, front hinge a little weak, spotting/soiling to covers]. The second of three pulp novels published published by Fuller under his own name in the 1930s (he claimed in his autobiography to have written many more, under a variety of pseudonyms). The story, as Fuller explained it, has to do with a young man who had been "conceived scientifically, then brought up by his mother to be the ideal son." However, Mom wasn't counting on her grown-up boy eventually learning some additional facts of life from an amoral young lady named Peggy, "a fascinating wench who may not have eaten her spinach but certainly knew her onions." A rarity for sure, and like Fuller's first novel, "Burn, Baby, Burn!," a vivid embodiment of the future film director's pulp-fiction-tabloid-journalism sensibility. .
