First Edition. Frank Mechau dustjacket art. Author's third book. "A dramatic and exciting novel of Cuba, where sugar dominates and warps men's lives." Ford Madox Ford's critique states: "It will convince you that you have lived in Cuba. You will find there: Passion, Guns, Trusts, Mexican Assassins, Arson, Sex Appeal, Cane, Crushing Machines and who knows what other crushes, in all sense of the term. If you escape with your life you will be lucky". Near Fine in a nearly Very Good dustjacket, a vertical split at mid spine (3/4 length) has been mended at verso with archival tape, closed tears at lower front panel and front flap edge also mended at verso, some shallow chipping.
