Notes 1st edition/1st printing. SIGNED by author on loosely laid-in bookplate. Author's scarce first book. Near fine book that is very tight, clean and has no handwriting in it with very slight shelf-bumping to spine ends, in a fine, price intact and undamaged dustjacket. A lovely example of this surprise best seller which had a 1st printing of only 6,000 copies but won the PEN/Hemingway Award. A young woman stuck in a small town with an overbearing mother and a stoned husband gets at the truth of her family and life. ; Signed by Author
