1 Cavanna, Betty A Time for Tenderness
New York William Morrow & Co. 1962 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dj Illustrated by (dj) Evaline Ness 
[solid copy with mild shelfwear, light stain to cloth at fore-edge of front cover from where dust jacket had gotten a little wet (internally) and stuck to cover; there is also some scrunching/wrinkling in the title page; jacket has excellent exterior appearance, internal dampstain only faintly visible, one-inch tear at bottom of front fold-over, moderate chipping at spine ends]. Peggy and her mother and little brother move to Rio de Janeiro, where they experience inter-generational conflict in the face of the strange new social customs -- in particular, Peggy's mother "found it impossible to reconcile herself to the casual acceptance of dark-skinned people." "With vivid language [the author] describes the life of Americans who live in ' The Marvelous City,' the wild color and excitement of Carnival, the squalor of the slums where Peggy works in a clinic."
