Cunningham, George
Lily-Skin Lover. His Passion for Light-Complexioned Women Leads Him to Destruction
New York: Exposition Press, 1960. First Edition. Very good plus.. 54pp. Original green cloth in pictorial dust jacket. Minor wear. Novella set in Detroit, written by an African-American author, in which protagonist Rod Reed kills his dark-skinned wife to chase after lighter-skinned women, falling into a life of crime. The dust jacket blurb claims, "Tense and headlong and written with stark power, this exciting novelette conjures up the atmosphere of a vice- and crime-ridden pocket of one of our great cities, and lays bare the passions of a man whose inner torment leads him to outer excesses that destroy him." Only a handful of copies in OCLC. A handsome copy.
Bookseller: McBride Rare Books [U.S.A.]
