STONE, Grace Zaring

The Grotto

New York: Harper Bros., 1951

8vo, pp. 249. Original pale blue textured boards and black spine, lettered in gilt at spine. A little age-toned, some offestting to preliminaries, but a near fine copy in a very good, edgeworn dustwrapper, with three chips to top edge of rear panel.

First edition.
'Grace Zaring Stone is the first novelist who has dared to write frankly about a tragic problem -- the struggle of a mother to save her son from becoming a homosexual. Her approach to the subject is feminine, delicate, and profoundly moral.' From the wrapper blurb, which starts off wrong and just keeps going.
An acceptable copy of an understandably obscure book.
