Book Description Doubleday & Company, Garden City, 1978. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: very good. First Edition. First edition. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by author Helen Jackson Lee on the front free endpaper. Very good in a near very good dust jacket with wear to the corners/spine and moderate shelfwear. Lee published the memoir as an expose of white-collar discrimination, recounting her life as a state employee, a job which she began in the 1940s. While the book is largely overlooked today, Lee's farsighted analysis of the word "nigger", is often cited by journalists and academics in light of the frequent use of the word in modern pop-culture and as a term used to powerful effect in African-American literature, as she "had a hundred different ways of saying nigger . it could be opened like an umbrella to cover a dozen different moods, or stretched like a rubber band to wrap up our family with other colored families . Nigger was a piece-of-clay word that you could shape . to express your feelings." (Kennedy 2003, Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word). Seller Inventory # 21
