First Edition - American. Signed by the film director Costa-Gravas who directed the award winning film ‘L'Aveu' ['The Confession'] based on this book, on a 5” x 3” paper label affixed to the front free endpaper. Fine bright copy in a near fine dust jacket with a couple of very tiny tears.

The film co-starred Simone Signoret as his wife Lise, Gabriele Ferzetti, Michel Vitold, Jean Bouise, and Laszlo Szabo.
