Here Comes a Candle, first published in 1950, is Fredric Brown at his most unconventional and audacious – a novel that, in many respects, was far ahead of its time. Psychologically complex, unconventionally told in an array of stylistic variations, it is a tour de force with a savagely ironic ending not to be soon forgotten and offers a grim look at the underside of a sanitized post-World War II America. With an illuminating new introduction by Bill Pronzini that provides a lot of biographical details, a bonus short story, (the savage "The Joke") and a rare essay by Brown. Bound in three-piece cloth with a full color dustjacket.
