About this Item

Fourth Printing (so stated: undated, but c. 1940 based on publisher's advertisement for "recent and forthcoming Random House fiction listed on jacket's back panel). 8vo: [4],339,[1]pp. Publisher's oatmeal-colored cloth, upper cover and spine ruled in green and lettered in gilt, top edge stained green, title page printed in black and green; jacket lettered in yellow and grey, priced $2.50. Fine (virtually pristine), square, straight and tight with sharp corners; Fine, bright jacket. Petersen A20.5. Alternating chapters of two discrete narratives, The Wild Palms is Faulkner's experiment with counterpoint. One story centers on a convict's struggle to rescue a woman and her newborn baby from the 1929 Mississippi flood; the other, the adulterous love affair of Harry Wilbourne and Charlotte Rittenmeyer, "one of Faulkner's most fascinating female figures."
