FOR DEAR LIFE

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed by the author to Irma Wyckoff, who served as secretary to editor Maxwell Perkins at Charles Scribner's Sons, on the front flyleaf. Published in August 1936, this autobiographical novel was favorably received by critics, but sold poorly and soon fell into obscurity. It was recently republished by Kent State University Press in an edition edited by Virginia Pruitt and Howard Faulkner, who argued, "This is a story that deserves an audience, a story realistically portraying life among the rural poor in the early part of the twentieth century and the tough-minded woman who fought her entire life to overcome the obstacles that confronted women, the poor, the isolated. The novel has mythic resonances: it reads like a woman's version of the legendary American success story." Octavo. Original cloth binding, with blue stamping. Some very mild wear to the dust jacket; otherwise very good. Very good / Very good. Item #69958

Price: $100.00
