Salome: The Wandering Jewess


A fascinating book. A fantasy of immortality, as well as morality. Surprisingly sophisticated views on sex, and a not unflattering view of Judaism, in my opinion. One source indicates that Viereck later went on to become Hitler's chief propangandist, so perhaps I am missing an underlying message, This is book two of a triptych; I have the first on order. The dust jacket is pretty decent for vintage 1930, while the book covers are pristine, with a provocative design of a nude woman embossed in silver on purple cloth.

Viereck has been associated with scandals involving H. P. Lovecraft and a public relations firm, whose general manager had to testify in front of a Congressional committee.
