Description:

Hardcover with photo illustrated dust jacket all in very good condition. Signed twice by May Sarton - Top of front fly page - "For Helen with love from May", also signed bottom of front fly page - "York April, 1975, May Sarton". This short swift blow of a novel deals with an old woman trying to keep alive in a nursing home in a remote country place. The situation is tragic, but as one of its early readers wrote, "so much dignity and intelligence and wit (shall I say fire?)" that its effect is to challenge our compassion and our imagination where the old are concerned. Great novel! 133 pages. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: A novel in the form of a diary, this story tells of Caroline Spencer, a 76-year-old retired schoolteacher who has suffered a heart attack and been deposited by relatives in an old people's home. Subjected to subtle humiliations and petty cruelties, she fights back with all she has, and in a powerful climax wins a terrible victory. "I shared the anger and the righteous indignation which I felt behind every line".--Madeleine L'Engle.
