Carson McCullers-Clock Without Hands-Book-Signed 1961
Book Description: Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1961. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. First Edition. 6" - 8 1/2". Set in Georgia on the eve of court-ordered integration, Clock Without Hands contains McCullers's most poignant statement on race, class, and justice. A small-town druggist dying of leukemia calls himself and his community to account in this tale of change and changelessness, of death and the death-in-life that is hate. It is a tale, as McCullers herself wrote, of "response and responsibility -- of a man toward his own livingness". There is a handwritten name on first page. The book has been autographed on the title page by Carson McCullers. Signed by Author.
