The Violent Bear It Away, Flannery O'Connor
First edition, first printing of O'Connor's second and final published novel. New York: Farrar, Straus & Cudahy, 1960. A very good copy in a very good, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is sturdy and square, light wear to boards. Internally clean but for previous owner's book plate to front pastedown. Dust jacket shows some general shelfwear with a closed tear at spine heel (reinforced with tape on verso), minor abrasion to front panel. A presentable copy, protected in archival mylar.
