New York: Macaulay, (c.1932). 1st ed. Hardcover. 252p. plus 3 unnumbered pages adverts. Reddish-orange cloth. dj. 19cm. The jacket has only modest minor flaws -- a few modest tears and a bit of other wear along top edge of jacket (mostly on rear panel), some modest edge-wear along bottom edge of front panel and just a touch of soiling on the rear panel. A novel about a young doctor who finds himself interning at a hospital where he is surrounded by corruption and members of the medical profession who are not pursuing high ideals. There are no racially identified characters. Furman, the co-author, was white and went on to write many other books over the next several decades, mostly books aimed at juvenile readers.This novel was a critical and commercial failure. It was also Thurman's final novel. He had been born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1902 and was only 32 when he died of tuberculosis in the charity ward of a New York hospital in 1934. Fine / Near Fine.
