DescriptionFlannery O'Connor. Wise Blood. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1952.
First edition. Octavo. 232 pages.
Original yellow cloth with black spine titles. Edge wear to the boards, especially at the spine ends. A very good copy in a dust jacket that is chipped and toned, with areas of loss to head of spine and lower edge of front panel and an abrasion that affects the "O' C" of the author's last name on the spine panel.
This, O'Connor's first book, centers on the story of Hazel Motes, the would-be founder of a church without Christ. Motes is the first of many "grotesque" characters that would come to be a hallmark of her writing style.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
