Obolensky, 1963. Hardcover. First edition. A very good book in a very good dust jacket. Price clipped. The author's first book. Offsetting to the front and rear pastedowns. Chipping at the head and foot of the jacket spine and chipping along the bottom edge of the front panel. General wear to the extremities and light soiling to the rear panel. From the excerpt on the front flap of the jacket: "Didion's electrifying first novel begins with a murder on the bank of the Sacramento River--a murder that is at once an act of vengeance and a blind attempt to shore up a disintegrating marriage. Out of that act, Didion constructs a tragic and beautifully nuanced work of fiction." Signed by the author on the title page.
