Written in 1928, the year Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings moved to Cross Creek, her autobiographical first novel, Blood of My Blood, was never published. Its existence was unknown to her contemporaries--including Max Perkins, her editor at Scribner's.

Blood of My Blood is a portrait of the young artist very nearly ruined by egotism and through being alternately pushed and spoiled by her mother Ida. It is also a tender tribute to her father Arthur and a moving account of their relationship. But always at the center of the story is the intense love and hate that flamed back and forth between mother and daughter. Blood of My Blood reveals not only the painful process of maturation for a creative but tormented mind but also the steady growth of an artist.

There are wonderful descriptions of the natural world, people, objects, and--uniquely for Rawlings--of the big city and city-dwellers. Born in Washington, D.C., and reared there until her graduation from high school in 1914, Rawlings' descriptions of the city are historically charming, and her depiction of the society where "class distinctions were shaved wafer thin" is remarkable for its pertinence nearly a century later.

Book Description University Press of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition, First Printing. Number line in the work reads as follows: 07 06 05 04 03 02 6 5 4 3 2 1; this indicates that the volume is first edition, first printing. Book itself has two-tone purple cloth covers with gold lettering on the spine. Dust jacket is protected in an archival quality cover. BRAND NEW BOOK, NEVER USED. 170 pages. Clean, fresh, tight and bright. This work was Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings autobiographical first novel, that was never published during her lifetime. Blood of my Blood enjoyed only a brief life at its inception-written, submitted for publication, and rejected all within the span of a year. Mrs. Rawlings apparently never offered the manuscript for publication again. At some point the manuscript passed into the hands of her friend Julia Scribner, and it was not until 1988 long after Julia's death, that the work again saw the light of day. Why was this book-the first of Rawling's career-lost for so long? That is another story, here is the book, a must for all Rawlings fans. Bookseller Inventory # 0005830
