Can There Be a Gothic Literature?
Amsterdam, Uitgeverij De Harmonie, (1975). The text of McCarthy's 1973 Johan Hizenga Lecture. Small label removal shadow rear cover; very near fine in self-wrappers. McCarthy, the author of such bestselling novels as The Group, was the preeminent female novelist and critic in the U.S. -- the wife, for a time, of Edmund Wilson, and the first U.S. critic to extoll the virtues of William Burroughs' Naked Lunch, when that book was banned in the U.S. [#024572] $70
