Light in August. William Faulkner.
(Faulkner, William)

Light in August.

Rahway, NJ: Smith & Haas, (1932). First printing, first binding of rough tan cloth stamped in orange on front cover and in blue and orange on the spine. Top edge stained orange. Faulkner's seventh novel marks a change from the interior monologue and stream of consciousness narrative modes of previous works to more conventional storytelling. A novel which, according to its jacket copy, is "as luxuriant as a plant grown in the tropical soil of the delta of the Mississippi River." Some spotting along top edge, else a very fine copy in the original orange and blue dust-jacket, which shows slight wear at extremities. Scarce in dust-jacket. Item #20491

(Petersen A13.1a).
