Pyramid #45 I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang!
I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang!
By Robert E. Burns
Cover by Hunter Barker
The long-forgotten book upon which the Paul Muni classic movie was
based. Penology in the United States, especially in the South, was far
different in the early 1930s than it is today. The author was convicted
of a petty crime, and sentenced to 10 years hard labor. He escaped, made
his way back to Chicago, and rebuilt his life. Betrayed by a jealous
woman, he was extradited to Georgia and sentenced - AGAIN - to 10 years
on the chain gang!
First Pyramid printing, 1952. Clean cover with diagonal creases at
both outer corners, and a one-ince tear left side of top. Spine is
clean, uncreased, mildly worn at ends. Pages are brown. Binding is
tight, with one bump in the foredge.
