New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1956. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. The seventh book from this South African writer. One of his better known books. A very near fine tight copy in a near fine dust jacket that has some darkening to the spine. Signed and inscribed by Abrahams on the title page: "Dear Gene, This is the most important i've written so far, speaking politically. Sincerely Peter Abrahams 5/4/59." A very uncommon book signed, I haven't seen another copy before.
