First Edition, First Printing. Signed by Kennedy on the title page. Fine book in a fine dust jacket with very slight rubbing to the corners and spine head. Second volume in the Albany trilogy and his third book. The book follows Billy Phelan, a slightly tarnished poker player, pool hustler, and small-time bookie, as he moves through the lurid nighttime glare of a tough Depression-era town. Full of Irish pluck, he works the fringes of Albany sporting life with his own particular style—until he falls from underworld grace. Octavo, 8vo. A lovely copy!
