[generally tight and clean, but a bit of damage (fraying) to top rear corner; jacket well-worn at edges/corners, paper loss at top of spine, several tears at top of front panel with a 1/4" x 1" chunk just barely hanging on]. Novel about a diverse group of immigrants passing through Ellis Island, by an author who had been born in Latvia and had traveled extensively before coming to the U.S. in 1946 -- as the jacket blurb puts it, "a story of suspended lives by one who has known the tension of waiting on the threshold." Striking jacket illustration by Lynd Ward, of the Statue of Liberty seen through a barred window.
