Harlan Ellison 1ST Edition Paperback REGENCY BOOKS– January 1, 1961

Black cover blurb:
STORIES OF CONTROVERSY
HARLAN ELLISON had his first novel published at the age of twenty-one. A relentless study of juvenile delinquency the N.Y. Times noted as. "marked by economy and narrative vigour plus a convincing authenticity," the author ran with a teenage-gang in Brooklyn to gain background.
Here in 22 short stories ranging from a razor-sharp indictment of anti-semitisim to a terrifying new look at Negro prejudice, this often shocking, never boring writer provides a hornbook of the hung-up generation...perceptive and often alarming insights into the hip, the lost, the ones with no way out: with no doors, no windows in their lives.
Unable to cope, afraid of love and doomed by their own acts, the people in these stories exist on the thin edge of desperation.
Now 27, Ellison has lived in the frentic hyped-up world about which he writes. Currently living in Illinois he is at work on a serious novel of Negro-White relations in the North..And here stories with NO DOORS, NO WINDOWS
