Collecting tips:

Shirley Ann Grau has never really been a hot ticket with collectors, although fine copies of her Pulitzer-winning novel The Keepers of the House (1964) are rapidly dwindling away, and where scarcity goes, price tends to follow. Her first book The Black Prince and Other Stories (1955) is also uncommon in nice condition, but not that many people seem to care.
