(Middlesex), Penguin Books, (1969). First thus, a British paperback reissue of her 1968 "pamphlet" about -- and against -- the war, including an account of her trip to Hanoi as well as an exchange of letters between the author and Diana Trilling about the implications of abandoning the war effort in Vietnam. Inscribed by the author: "To dear Peggy, with much love from this revenante, Mary McCarthy." The inscription appears below the author bio in the book, and McCarthy has edited her biographical information, crossing out that she is a contributor to The New Yorker and that she lives in Manhattan and spends [only] part of the year in Paris. Age toned pages, several shallow abrasions near the spine, affecting the "H" in Hanoi. Very good in wrappers. [#032832] SOLD
