New York: Random House, (1975). First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. [iv], 185 pages. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Shallow bump to top fore corner of lower board.

Gayl Jones's scarce and highly regarded debut novel of an African American woman's struggles with abuse, generational trauma, and her hatred of the 19th century slave master who raped her maternal ancestors. Toni Morrison, who was the book's editor at Random House, said of it, "No novel about any black woman could ever be the same after this."
