Behold This Woman by David Goodis

Behold This Woman by David Goodis (Bantam 407 – 1948)

Clara Ervin is a blonde bombshell, living quietly on a Philadelphia back street, as second wife to an aging clerk. Into her life come two young men: one a childhood sweetheart, the other a wealthy Main Line playboy. There is a third man too, a man who walks the shadowed streets on errands of his own.

Purchased as part of a lot of 100 vintage paperbacks at the Lakewood Fairgrounds antique show in Atlanta sometime in the late ’90s. From what I recall, I paid $200 for the entire lot, which was beans considering what was included.

Gary Lovisi’s Antique Trader Collectible Paperback Price Guide has this edition valued between $12 and $150, depending on condition.
