good_die_young_websiteRemembered today as a master of mystery and edge-of-the-seat thrills, Cornell Woolrich began his career by imitating F. Scott Fitzgerald'€™s "€œJazz Age"€ tales, selling light-heart stories to publications such as College Humor, Illustrated Love and The Smart Set. In these early romances, Woolrich developed his literary style and the motifs that he would later use so effectively to create truly unforgettable fiction.

These stories have been "€œlost"€ and unavailable to the reading public for more than three generations. Now Black Dog Books presents The Good Die Young, a collection 35 early efforts by Woolrich that have never been collected or reprinted.
