That Difficult Second Novel

James Jones second novel
'Some Came Running' is the
perfect example of the difficulty
an author can experience when trying
to follow up a major first novel success.
Even though 'Some Came Running' was
turned into a movie starring Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine,
compared with the blockbuster that was 'From Here To Enternity'
it was seen as a relative failure.
