Spine cocked, spine ends and corners modestly worn, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. A sequel to "The Great Hunger". Bojer was a Norwegian author who caused a brief sensation in the American literary world with the publication of his novel *The Great Hunger* in 1919, and was lauded as the most important Scandinavian writer since Ibsen. He was so critically admired that a book of critiques by James Branch Cabell, John Galsworthy, Joseph Hergesheimer, and Cecil Roberts, with a frontispiece portrait of the author by Kahlil Gibran, was published in 1920.
