Boston: Little, Brown, 1940. First Edition. Noted Alabama author's first novel, set in the Old South, published with the help and support of Margaret Mitchell. Norris did not publish another book until 1958, and then not again until 1985. In 1994 and 1997 she completed her writing career with two collections of poetry. Her work has remained a subtle staple of Southern literature, and has been adapted into two films, including the beloved Christmas television movie, "The Christmas Wife," with Julie Harris and jason Robards, produced in 1988 by the then-new HBO.
Fine in an about Fine dust jacket, with jacket showing just a touch of toning to the spine titles. A stunning copy of a book normally found in poor condition.
