Losing Battles. By Eudora Welty. First Edition, First Printing. Random House, 1970.

$35.00

Born in Jackson, Mississippi, Eudora Welty’s writings have always been deeply informed by her life in the American South. In Losing Battles, she portrays with subtle genius the nuances of life on a farm in Mississippi, with humor and grace and introspection. It was her first bestseller. It was also the last novel she ever wrote; although, two years later she revised a previously published short story into the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Optimist’s Daughter. Still, Losing Battles is a triumph of her literary career and one of the best novels ever written about the American South.

Very nearly fine in the original green cloth boards, only minor rubbing to front board. Text block fine. Top edge dyed orange. In the original dust jacket, near fine with price clipped.

Fine first edition, first printing by Eudora Welty.
