A first printing of Finnley Wren, Philip Wylie's innovative and satirical novel. This outrageous story is something akin to a modern Tristram Shandy, with generous quantities of ''humor, philosophy, character, belly-laughter, horror, tragedy, comedy, cocktails, amours, brilliant conversation, gravity and impudence'' (Cleveland Plain Dealer, April 20, 1934).
