The Wild Palms.
New York: Random House, 1939. Hardcover. First edition. A close to fine book in a nearly fine dust jacket. Very clean copy with a bit of fading to the top edge.† The dust jacket has a little darkening near the spine of the rear panel,† but is otherwise quite nice, not price-clipped, with no chips or tears and only the most miniscule bit of edge wear. Original price of $2.50 jacket flap. A collection of two interconnected short stories seen as a man struggling with a woman who ultimately causes his downfall. Faulkner preferred the title, If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem. The Wild Palms title was subsequently changed.
