    A Signed First Edition of Sue Grafton's First Book

    Sue Grafton. Keziah Dane. New York: The Macmillan Company, [1967].

    First edition, first printing. Signed by Grafton on the title page. Octavo. 220 pages.

    Red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Publisher's blue stain to top edge. Fine in fine dust jacket.

    This, Sue Grafton's first novel, published when she was just 27, was not a mystery but was, instead, a mainstream novel dealing with the family dynamics of a Kentucky widow and her children. This is one of only two books from Kentucky native Sue Grafton, famous for her continuing "alphabet" series of mystery novels, that is not a mystery.
