Child of Rage

Jim Thompson


One of Jim Thompson’s most bitter and sexually explicit novels, Child of Rage still has the ability to shock readers over 30 years after its original publication, back in 1974. With a new introduction by Ed Gorman, an interview with Thompson’s original paperback publisher, two original color works by Harry O. Morris, created just for this edition, two photographs of Jim Thompson himself, a small reproduction of the original paperback cover art, and a bonus novella by Thompson (A Horse in the Baby’s Bathtub), long out of print, this is the definitive edition of this raunchy classic. Bound in cloth with gold cloth panels. Signed by Ed Gorman and Harry O. Morris.
