First printing of Farrell's camp-gothic masterpiece.
About fine in near fine jacket.
"She may be your own sister, honey, your own flesh and blood, but you've got to face it, deep down inside she hates you like poison and nothing would please her more than to see you get it right in the neck."
Farrell's gruesome tale of rivals bound together by history, hatred, and show business. "WARNING," warns the jacket flap, "Once you have begun this shocking story of two sisters, you will be trapped...until you discover WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE and WHY?" The inspiration for the 1962 film starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.
Farrell, master of his very particular niche, was also author of "What Ever Happened to Cousin Charlotte?", the basis for Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte, and the screenplay "What's the Matter With Helen?" Life is full of such questions, each with its own terrible answer.
