Re: RARA-AVIS: Question concerning James M. Cain article from 1933

Date: 28 Mar 2008

The bibliography at the back on the Roy Hoopes biography of Cain lists only four magazine articles that Cain wrote in 1933:

Paradise, American Mercury, March 1933 The Widow's Mite, or Queen of the Pancho, Vanity Fair, August 1933 Camera Obscura, American Mercury, October 1933 Tribute to a Hero, American Mercury, November 1933

Judging by comments within the biography, the second and third articles are about Hollywood and the fourth is about a football star at Cain's college. That would seem to leave Paradise. However, if it's not definitely a magazine article, Cain started writing a syndicated column for Hearst Syndicate in November 1933.

While looking, I also found this list of the Cain holdings at the Library of Congress:

Hope this helps.
