All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.

NY, Farrar Straus Giroux, (1985). Her second book, first novel, which expands on themes she touched on in her collection of stories, notably the plight of young, strong-willed girls born into a life of poverty. Inscribed by the author to Nicholas Delbanco and his wife, "with much love." Kincaid's pen ran out in the middle of the inscription: two colors are used. Fine in a very near fine, slightly spine-sunned dust jacket. A nice association copy: Delbanco was responsible for Kincaid's moving to Bennington to teach at Bennington College; and Kincaid and her then-husband, Allen Shawn (the dedicatee of this book), lived in Delbanco's house when they first settled in Vermont.
