About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Domestic Dilemma by McCullers, Carson.

Description:

19pp. Signed by the author. Final typescript, probably a setting copy, of the short story which first appeared in The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, published by Houghton Mifflin in 1951. Contains just a few minor textual differences from the published version. Carson McCullers was one of the most influential American fiction writers of the twentieth century, making a name for herself with the publication of her first book, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, at the young age of twenty-three. Richard Wright, in a review of the author's work, described it as a depiction of "everyday life bathed in a rich and strange meaning, devoid of pettiness and sentimentality." This story is similar to an earlier one by McCullers called "The Instant of the Hour After," written well before her tumultuous marriage to James Reeves McCullers, although "A Domestic Dilemma" does mirror certain aspects of her and her husband's home life in Nyack, New York. The setting is probably the Nyack house they lived in, overlooking the Hudson. The author's uneven signature, in blue pen on the last page, appears to show the effects of the two strokes and subsequent paralysis she suffered at the age of 30. Fine in plastic sheets within a black binder, which is housed in custom quarter green leather and tan cloth clamshell box, gilt lettered on the spine. Bookseller Inventory #
