A Modern Library reprint edition of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel featuring a charismatic Southern politician. The story is centered around the author's Governor Willie Stark character, an obvious representation of Louisiana's Huey Long (though the author later denied this connection). The principal character is the governor's aide, the sardonic Jack Burden. This work was named to the Modern Library list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. --- In Toledano spine 11 / blue cloth / ML hex torchbearer logo blindstamped to front cover / gilt-stamped spine titling / tan Kent endpapers / jacket style l, verso blank. Likely published c.1964 (though 1953 date appears in book). ML #170.2. --- An excellent copy: clean, tightly-bound, and bright though a couple of leaves have been mis-cut by the binder. Unclipped jacket also in excellent condition, though with small tears and slight scuffing to edges; in removable archival mylar protector.; 12mo (7 to 7-1/2 in. tall) ; vi, 464 pages
