Easy Street, Susan Berman
First edition, first printing, inscribed by Berman prior to publication to her close friend and record mogul Danny Goldberg, who features prominently in the book's acknowledgements . Susan Berman was a reporter and the daughter of Davie Berman, a Las Vegas mobster and Bugsy Siegel's partner. She was murdered in 2000 and her longtime friend, Robert Durst, is currently on trial for her killing, thanks in part to the 2015 HBO documentary 'The Jinx' as well as a March 1999 letter from Durst to Berman. Rare signed, particularly with this strong association.
New York: The Dial Press, 1981. A very good copy in a very good, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square. A bit of sunning to board extremities, faint discoloration at the top of the spine, light stain to fore-edge. Jacket shows a faint dampstain along the top of spine and a portion of the panels, minor shelfwear and a sticker over the publisher's price, protected in archival mylar.
