Collecting tips:

O'Connor's 1961 Pultizer-winning novel The Edge of Sadness seems to be his only book that commands much interest from collectors. While never very expensive, it used to be moderately uncommon in jacket, but the wide availability of copies on the Internet has ceased to make it particularly hard to find.
