    DANSVILLE,

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Harper Collins, (1986) dj. Hardcover first edition - The author's highly praised first novel, set in Texas cattle country in the years right after World War II. The Library Journal review called it an "entrancing romance. . . Their attraction is mutual, their relationship deeply sensuous, often tempestuous, and notably illicit in this time and place. But class and age divide them, and a break seems inevitable, as does the final resolution. McCorquodale tells this story in cadenced, compelling prose that is stunningly sensuous without being either explicit or euphemistic." 371 pp. ISBN: 0-6060155183.
