[nice clean copy, very slight indentation in bottom page edges (affecting about 3 pages); jacket lightly soiled/rubbed, one small closed tear at top edge of rear panel]. Who was "Hilary March"? This is apparently her only published book (unless she wrote a 1927 novel called "Wet Weather"), and when anyone writes a single novel which focuses rather intensely on the personal psychodrama of a protagonist of the same gender, a reader's speculations (OK, mine) inevitably trend to the autobiographical. Add to that a complete absence of any biographical cover blurb (at least in this, the American edition), and one begins to suspect a pseudonym. Add to THAT the particular thematic concern of this particular book -- "An unwanted child, she found her ability to trust and love constantly thwarted. A tentative first friendship was destroyed by a schoolmistress who accused her of Lesbianism. Accepting the woman's accusation as truth, Barbara spent her adolescence questioning her feelings and despising herself." -- and I just can't help but wonder, as I said: "Who WAS 'Hilary March'?" (Published in the U.K. in 1966 as "Either/Or.")
