Friday Finds: “The Flesh and Mr. Rawlie”

Another in our growing line of vintage book covers we love.

The Flesh and Mr. Rawlie (Lancer, 1963), by Morton Cooper. Illustration by Victor Olson.

One synopsis says this novel “which tells of a suicidal playwright on the eve of his attempt at a Broadway comeback with a frothy musical comedy.” Goodreads says: “Rawlie lived hard and fast. Then it began to change, and the road turned downhill. The women grew cheaper, the wine thicker, and soon there was too much of both.”

An earlier cover for this book, with art by Barye Phillips, is here.
