[a bit of wear and light bumping at spine ends, top front corner also very slightly bumped; jacket age-toned, with a bit of wear at extremities, small tears with slight paper loss at top of spine, small stain at bottom edge of rear panel]. A "strange and fascinating novel [about] an illegitimate child who becomes a modern Jezebel. Through the clever use of her angelic, innocent-seeming beauty, Edna Mae conquers, then destroys, all who cross her path. In Farmdale, town of her birth, she becomes notorious as the cause of a triple tragedy: the deaths of the doctor's son, of her youthful lover, and of his father -- all in one night." The Chicago-born author's idea of authentic, down-home Farmdale dialogue appears to have been primarily the substitution of "ya" for "you" at every opportunity; I suspect he'd never been much farther south than Garfield Blvd.
