A special Limited edition and true first edition/first printing preceding the trade edition. Unread Very Fine condition, SIGNED by author Edna O'Brien.

In these selections from twenty years of her best short fiction, O'Brien pulls the reader into a woman's experience. Most of the stories are set in Ireland; the characters are farmers, doctors, and nuns, all with one thing in common: it is a desire to break out and fulfill themselves either through the crucible of religion or the crucible of love.

This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded sewn-in pages with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
