1 Brooks, Richard The Boiling Point
New York Harper & Brothers (c.1948) First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good- dj Illustrated by (dj design) [Philip] Grushkin 
[good solid copy, bottom front corner bumped, mild shelfwear to bottom edge; jacket missing several small pieces at edges/corners, some paper loss at both ends of spine (no text or illustration affected by any of these small missing bits)]. The screenwriter-almost-director's second novel, in which a labor agitator stirs up political and racial tensions in a small Southwestern town. A jacket blurb by Humphrey Bogart (who appeared that same year in KEY LARGO, written by Brooks) calls it "the most gripping novel I have read in many years," but the New York Times critic begged to differ, opining that the book was "preachy and melodramatic [and] unsatisfactory as a novel, [but] still quite a good scenario." Brooks made the leap from writer to director just two years later with CRISIS, returning just once more to the novelistic trenches, with "The Producer" (1951), before devoting himself exclusively to the cinema.
