BIDDY BROGAN'S BOY

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1942. First Edition. Hardcover. "For his last novel, Tully returned, in a more nostalgic and even spiritual mode, to his family and his Ohio roots. 'Biddy' was his mother's nickname (of course he himself is the Boy of the title), and although he goes over much the same ground as in his earlier books, the difference here stems largely from his focus on his relationship with his sister Virginia, who had also featured prominently in Shanty Irish" (Prouty, The Dozen and One: A Field Guide to the Books of Jim Tully). Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. Small bookseller's label to the rear flyleaf. Mild fading along the spine and extremities. The dust jacket is browned, moreso along the spine and folds, with two small chips along the bottom edge; otherwise very good. Very good / Very good. Item #69480

Price: $150.00
