Abridged from the original hardcover edition published in 1950 by Harcourt, Brace and Company. The son of a white father and a black mother feels alienated from both races, so he does what any alienated young man might do: sets out "to achieve personal success at any cost," even if his "selfish quest was doomed to culminate in a monstrous betrayal of his own people." 222 pages, plus 2 pages of advertisements for other Popular Library titles. Moderate spine slant, thin reading crease to left edge of front cover, previous owner's name stamp/date stamp to front end paper, light tanning.
