Fresno: Fabian Books, 1959. First Edition. 12mo. Mass market paperback. Pictorial wraps. Very good plus. Spine faintly creased. Minimal shelfwear. Single closed tear to preliminary leaf. Pages toned, otherwise clean and unmarked. 148pp. (Item ID: 22304)

The story of two brothers, one a soldier home from war, the other just released from unjust imprisonment, both struggling against the racist constraints of midcentury Alabama and the afteraffects of trauma. A blend of melodrama and social realism by an African-American author stationed as a Marine in Korea at the time of publication. Opportunistically packaged as a taboo-breaking interracial romance, with a breathless pulp-style cover illustration at odds with its literary quality and aspirations. Cover text reads: "Bess Gordon knew the code of the South but her passions were not to be denied." (The reader will soon discover that her passion was, in fact, denied.)
