Advise and Consent: A Novel of Washington Politics.
Doubleday & Co., New York 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
