1 Cook, Will We Burn Like Fire
Monarch 130 1959 First Edition Paperback Good to Very Good 
Paperback original. We could call this a racing novel featuring fast cars and a fast woman, but dammit, the guy who wrote the copy on the back cover deserves a bit of a nod for this effort: "To Wendel Garland sports-car racing was an intimate and personal thing--like making love to his sensation-starved secretary, Alice Lavery [ummm--if he's making love to her and she's *sensation-starved*, what does that tell us?]. Every time he got on the track Wendel risked his neck to win. He knew the car could be the instrument of his death, yet there was poetry in danger -- as there was poetry and danger in Alice's dedicated depravity." (Dedicated depravity! I *knew* there had to be more to the allure of racing than just the cars! Sign me up.). Handling wear, light edgewear, gentle crinkling/creasing, some scraping to bottom portion of right edge of back cover. Internally tight and clean.
