Depression Island. RADICAL, PROLETARIAN LITERATURE.

Depression Island

Pasadena: By the Author, 1935. First Edition. Satirical stage drama, based on Sinclair's 1933 pamphlet "The Way Out." Produced as a fund-raiser during Sinclair's EPIC campaign, but probably never staged since. Unlike most other Sinclair works from this period, there was no simultaneous issue from a trade publisher. According to Ahouse, Sinclair had planned this as a film, and thus there are no act or scene divisions in the printed play. The film was never produced.Uncommon in jacket. AHOUSE A55a. Red cloth boards; dustjacket; 124pp. Tight, straight copy, about Fine in the uncommon dustjacket, lightly rubbed and soiled but still attractive and free of losses, VG or better.

Price: $150.00
