What Our Customers Say...

Description

Proof Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce

A scarce uncorrected proof copy of the first edition.

In the publisher's wraps. 

In America is based on the true story of Polish actress Helena Modjeska, her arrival in California in 1876 with her husband, son and lover in tow, and her rise to stardom.

The work has been praised by literary critics for Sontag's commentary on all things "America", from the utopian American Dream to sacrifice and exploitation. 

This proof copy contains the uncorrected text of the first edition before it was refined for its official publication. 

Condition

In the publisher's wraps. Externally, excellent with minimal shelf wear and the odd spot to the rear wrap. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean.

Very Good Indeed
