New York: Coward-McCann, (1952).
First edition. A faint ring on the front board else near fine in good plus dustwrapper with several modest chips and tears, and some professional internal reinforcing to the jacket folds. A presentable copy of a rare book, Highsmith's pseudonymous lesbian novel. Because its ending leaves the strong possibility of happiness for the two lovers, defying the lesbian pulp formula of the time, some consider this the first happy ending in homosexual fiction.
