RARA-AVIS: Harry Grey's "The Hoods"

Hi All,

I've been too busy to participate in discussions here lately, but not too busy to read. For a while, I've been wanting to read Grey's novel (which, for those who don't know, was the basis for Sergio Leone's phenomenal Once Upon a Time in America). The original paperback version is pricey but there is also a hardback reprint from Buccaneer Books--also a bit pricey but more importantly I don't know anything about the publisher & didn't want to buy a POD copy. Does anyone know about the quality of this reprint? There is also a recent British paperback called Once Upon a Time in America that lists Harry Grey as the author. This is the most affordable but I wasn't sure if it was a reprint of the novel or the script for the movie (it's published by Bloomsbury Publishing & their Web site claims it is inspired by the movie, whatever that means). Can anyone tell me if this Bloomsbury Publishing edition is the full text of the novel?

Thanks for any & all assistance.
