The Violent Bear It Away

New York: Signet Books, 1960. First printing of this edition, and first printing in paperback. SIGNED by O'Connor on the title page to publisher, Kurt Enoch. From the Kurt Enoch collection, with a letter of provenance included.

O’Connor’s second novel, published four years before her death, follows the struggle of a young boy with fate, and epitomizes the Southern Gothic iconography that O’Connor established in American literature.

Kurt Enoch was the founder of Signet Books and a publisher whose desire was to bring great literature and genre fiction out of the libraries and into the hands of readers. With a letter of provenance included. A tremendous association.

Near Fine in wrappers.
