Monkey On My Back was published in New York by the Popular Library in 1953. I’d call this copy VG- in wraps, as issued. There’s some small chipping to crown of spine. It’s also stamped on its FFEP (front free end paper). The pages are tight, though. Safe to say this copy didn’t get read to death. A lot of them did.
Scarce awesome paperback sleaze in this condition!
