Annie John
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.
