More Information
John O'Hara, born 1905 to 1970, worked as a journalist before becoming a full-time writer. He is regarded as a classic American author, not only by readers and critics but also collectors of first editions as well. His first book is extremely collectable and is very valuable, especially so in original dustwrapper. All his work was first released in the United States, English editions are collectable and do fetch reasonable sums, though roughly half that of their US counterparts. There are no alternative titles but some books saw no English edition released.
