James Ross, They Don't Dance Much (abridged), Signet, 1952

Any idea why Signet would have put out an abridged version of this? It's not that long, around 300 pages in my hardcover copy. It may be a bit raunchy for the early 50s, but certainly no raunchier than the Spillane titles Signet was publishing around the same time.

I have no idea. I've never read this edition. My reading copy is a later paperback from, I believe, Popular Library.

I believe Signet also did an abridged version of KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE
