Advise and Consent: A Novel of Washington Politics
New York: Doubleday & Co., 1959. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author, "All best wishes Allen Drury." An excellent copy in a very good dust jacket with some light wear to the extremities. Uncommon signed. The Saturday Review said of Advise and Consent in August 1959 that "It may be a long time before a better one comes along." Roger Kaplan of Policy Review wrote in 1999 that the novel "in many ways invented a genre in fiction…. The use of a racy intrigue, if possible involving both sex and foreign policy, is what characterizes the contemporary form. Forty years on, Advise and Consent is the only book of this genre that a literary-minded person really ought to read." The novel was adapted into the 1962 film Advise and Consent, directed by Otto Preminger and starring Walter Pidgeon and Henry Fonda.
