Pyramid #31 TOUGH TOWN vg
(The Ragged Edge)
By Jack Karney
It reads like "Tobacco Road, North." Come to the ragged underbelly of Manhattan, immediately after World War II.
The street was called Marshall Place, where brothels and dope were as
common as pushcarts and peddlers, and the kids were only one step ahead
of the police.
It was a desperate world of poverty and frustration that led lovely,
red-haired Trina to a terrible maturity; that turned slick, fast-talking
Blackie into a big-shot gnagster; that made Dave, the dreamer, vow to
clean up the "whole stinking mess."
Title page say "Specially revised in cooperation with the author." Whatever that means.
First paperback printing, 1951. Clean cover with light corner wear.
Some idiot wrote the date of acquisition - in ink - across the girl's
breast. Spine is clean, wrinkly, with a tear shaped like a reversed "C"
at bottom left.Pages are lightly browned. Binding is tight, but canted.
