[green cloth (see note), light wear at spine ends, otherwise a solid clean book; jacket slightly edgeworn, very shallow paper loss at spine ends, small triangular surface-scrape at upper right corner of front panel, light soiling to rear panel, about a one-inch split at bottom front hinge]. Dark and brooding novel of loneliness, romance and murder in a small Southern town; basis for the dark and brooding, and very romantic, Frank Borzage film (1948) of the same title. [NOTE: This novel was issued in both a red and green cloth binding, with the green being slightly thicker than the red (at least in examples I've seen). There are also two variant dust jackets: this one, designated "Variant B" (in Johnson, "The Dark Page"), features a man's head poking out of a cloudbank and partially blocking the moon, and is (again in my experience) less common than the "no-face" version.]
