1 Maltz, Albert A LONG DAY IN A SHORT LIFE
New York International Publishers 1957 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Clean and tight in original binding in Near Fine DJ (short tear at fold edge of spine) Written after Maltz's prison term (as one of the Hollywood Ten) following his refusal to answer questions of McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee (The Hollywood Ten). The "central theme is the fight against race bias, as it unfolds in a single day in a Washington, DC prison. Building up from a street fight which grew out of a demonstration by students against segregation in the city's high schools, the novel explores the sharp conflicts and the nuances of race relations among men from various walks of life and a great variety of backgrounds". ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
