About this Item: Bobbs Merrill, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A nice, FLAT SIGNED, copy of William Styron's first novel, written when he was 25 years old, and it received a great deal of critical acclaim. After his 1947 graduation, Styron took an editing position with McGraw-Hill in New York City. After provoking his employers into firing him, he set about writing his first novel in earnest. Three years later, he published the novel, Lie Down in Darkness. Among the honors bestowed on Lie Down in Darkness was the prestigious Rome Prize, awarded by the American Academy in Rome and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Styron was unable to immediately accept the award because he was recalled into the military because of the Korean War. The story is about a young, psychologically vulnerable woman, Peyton Loftis, who experiences her dysfunctional Virginia family as emotionally remote and oppressive, and who ultimately kills herself. The story is told partly in a stream-of-consciousness narrative. Styron incorporated many actual portions of his home town, the Hilton Village section of Newport News, Virginia. Much of the story's narrative occurs at the James River Country Club, which is still in operation today. Check out the photos of this wonderful collectible. Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1951. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Included. Salter, George (illustrator). First Edition. First edition, first printing of Styron's first book. Signed and inscribed by Styron on the title page. Original publisher's cloth, dust jacket. Very good or better with some fading to cloth; in a bright unclipped jacket with some minor wear, a few minor nicks and tiny tears. Styron published his first novel, Lie Down in Darkness, at the young age of twenty-six. After graduating from Duke University, he worked briefly as a reader for the McGraw-Hill Company in New York City. After being fired, Styron set out on what would prove to be an extremely successful writing career, beginning with this text. Lie Down in Darkness contains many of Styron's hallmark traits: a Southern setting, complicated race relations, an emotionally torn family, and macabre flavoring. In this story, Styron tells of the Virginian Loftis family and the events leading up to their daughter Peyton's suicide. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # WS005b

About this Item: Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Styron's first book, inscribed to the writer Jonathan Carroll: "with best wishes/ William Styron/ 27 September 1971/ (Twenty years, to the month, after publication)." The date is also nine years before Carroll's first published book, The Land of Laughs. Laid in is a typed note signed by Styron in which he agrees to the signing; based on the address, Carroll would have been an English teacher at the time, in North Carolina. The book is unevenly sunned on the cloth and bears a few small stains; very good in a jacket with modest edge wear including one edge tear, and a vertical crease to the spine; still very good. The note is folded, else fine, with a chipped mailing envelope included. A nice association copy of an important first novel. Forty years after this inscription, on the occasion of Styron's death in 2011, Carroll wrote a blog post on his website, referring to Styron as a "great American novelist.".
