Build My Gallows High. by Geoffrey Homes

Build My Gallows High.

by Geoffrey Homes

Publication: William Morrow & Company, 1946, New York

First edition. 8vo. Fine in fine price-clipped dust jacket lightly sunned on the spine, with some minor professional restoration at the extremities. 1001 Midnights p. 377 says, "This is a taut, hard-edged thriller, powerfully told in a clipped style reminiscent of Hemingway's, with superb characterization and a hammer-blow climax. The story of a man named Red Bailey who is haunted and ultimately destroyed by events of his past. Anyone who has seen and admired OUT OF THE PAST will find BUILD MY GALLOWS HIGH every bit as memorable."
