The Sudden Guest

by La Farge, Christopher

Condition: Very Good in Good dust jacket

New York: Coward-Mccann, Inc. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1946. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hardcover. 250 pp. Clean, straight copy with ex-libris bookplate on the front paste down and corresponding tone. The dust jacket is heavily worn along on all extremities with closed tears; now in a removable protective cover. Kirkus Review: ...(A) "psychological study of a selfish, ingrown old woman, who has to live through two hurricanes on the Rhode Island shore to learn that life demands human participation. La Farge has done a superb tour de force-it isn't really a novel, though it has the ingredients, and he has used the technique of Rumer Godden's Take Three Tenses.-the story is told as a fugue." ; 8vo .
