Nancy, a black nursemaid, is about to be hanged for killing her mistress’s baby. The mother, Temple Drake, knows the reason why. The night before the execution, a lawyer pleads with Temple to intercede, but will the past allow for justice or absolution in the present? Switching between narrative prose and play script, this is Faulkner’s haunting sequel to his earlier bestseller, Sanctuary.  Hardback in original dust-wrapper designed by Paul Hogarth.  No underlining, highlighting or inscriptions.  Binding strong.  Dust-wrapper slightly foxed with a small triangle shaped patch of loss to bottom left corner of front panel.  Endpapers slightly toned.  Corner tips of boards a little bumped, otherwise near fine.
