New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1960. First edition. Book Fine with faintest fading at the spine ends. Grey cloth, with white and grey stamping to the spine over red paper boards, grey top-stain. The dust jacket is Near Fine, very lightly faded along the spine, price-clipped and pinpoint wear at the extremities. All in all, well above average for a book prone to fading.O'Connor's second novel, published four years before her death. "The Violent Bear It Away" follows the struggle of a young boy with fate and is steeped in much of the Southern Gothic iconography that O'Connor is famous for. O'Connor was recognized posthumously for her work, when her "Complete Stories" won a National Book Award, in 1972. "The novel is superior in conception and execution to anything Miss O'Connor has previously published." (Contemporary New York Times Review).
