  • THE GROUP. by McCarthy, Mary.
    McCarthy, Mary.
    THE GROUP.

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Harcourt Brace & World, (1963) dj. Hardcover first edition - McCarthy's best-known novel, one which was on the bestseller list for almost two years and the basis of the 1966 film directed by Sidney Lumet. It follows the lives of eight women after their graduation in 1933 from Vassar College (the year that McCarthy herself graduated from Vassar), beginning with the marriage of one of them, Kay Strong, and ending with her funeral in 1940. In doing so, it dealt with many (at the time) controversial topics, including free love, contraception, abortion, lesbianism, and mental - controversial enough that the novel was banned in Australia, Italy, and Ireland. 378 pp.

    Condition: Very good in a fair only example of the fragile dust jacket (bookplate on front endpaper, several chips to the dj, including at both ends of the spine, other edgewear, price-clipped)
