Praised by Anthony Burgess as "powerfully moving" (99 Novels, 122), Styron's sixth novel received the first American Book Award for fiction in its year of publication and was hailed in The New York Times as "a passionate, courageous book… on the most important subject in the 20th century." Meryl Streep won an Oscar for her role in Alan J. Pakula's 1982 film adaptation. Preceded the same year by a signed limited edition (500 copies). Parker & Kermode, 544.

Dust jacket with a bit of soiling and the usual mild toning to spine. A near-fine copy.
