[RADICAL & PROLETARIAN LITERATURE] [CALIFORNIA] SINCLAIR, Upton
Co-Op. A Novel Of Living Together
New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1936. First Edition. Nice copy of this uncommon Sinclair novel, which provides a sort of fictional coda to Sinclair's EPIC campaign, tracing the movement from its origins in 1932 through its ultimate failure in 1934. The characters are a representative cross-section of destitute California families who participated in EPIC's experiments in co-operative living. Issued simultaneously under the author's own imprint; the Farrar edition is considerably scarcer, especially in jacket. Octavo. Blue cloth boards, lettered in gilt; dustjacket; 426pp. Slight fading to board edges and spine; top-stain a bit dulled; still a tight, attractive copy in a Near Fine dustwrapper, minimally faded on spine and lightly rubbed at spine ends, else unclipped and crisp.
