[nice tight clean copy, minor shelfwear only; jacket very attractive, with just a touch of soiling and a couple of tiny edge-nicks]. The trials and tribulations of an unwed mother -- or, more precisely, a divorcee who gets knocked up by her lover, then refuses his half-hearted marriage proposal, and subsequently suffers "pain, hunger, want." The jacket copy really goes to town, in the best Macaulay house style: "No human experience is so profound and rich in emotion as the long crisis of pregnancy . . . and when the expected child must legally be fatherless then crisis is added upon crisis. . . . It is amazing that this situation has never before been treated in all its dramatic fullness. In [this book] the anonymous author tells a story that for sheet intensity and stark realism has not been equalled in modern fiction. . . . The book is more than literature. It is life itself." Hoo boy.
