Description:
Jackson: University of Mississippi Press, 2009. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First edition. Octavo; xiii + 191pp.; tan cloth, in dust jacket. Signed by Petry on the title page. Petry's memoir explores the life and legacy of her mother, the writer Ann Petry. Best known for her 1946 novel The Street--the first book by a black woman to sell more than one million copies--Petry was notoriously guarded about her private life. Not only did she tailor her own life story by "omitting information, changing details, embellishing the stories she heard as a child," but she also destroyed many of her notebooks and personal documents in later life. In At Home Inside, Elisabeth Petry mines her mother's remaining journals to paint an intimate biographical portrait of one of the most poorly understood figures in American letters. A fine copy in a fine jacket, which has a small spot of interior soiling along the top edge of the front panel, not visible on the exterior.
