About this Item

Very Near-Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Fine condition dust jacket SIGNED by McMillan beautifully and legibly on the title page without inscription. The author's highly regarded 1st novel, about which Ishmael Reed wrote, "When it comes to portraying the authentic style of marginal Americans, Terry McMillan has few peers. Her prose is brilliant and exhilarating." Book is very nearly in Fine condition; its only flaws are three very tiny and very faint spots on the covers, the largest of which is about 1/4"x1/8" and is so faint it can hardly be seen. There is also a tiny printer's error in which a little of the gilt used for the lettering on the spine caught about 1/4" of the edge of the rear gutter. No other flaws of any kind and the dust jacket is flawless and has been put in a clear plastic protective sleeve. We will carefully pack this lovely collector's copy in bubble-wrap and ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABRP53
