Grafton, Sue
THE LOLLY-MADONNA WAR
Peter Owen, London, 1969. Signed first printing of the second and scarcer of Grafton's two mainstream literary novels. Grafton's second published novel, preceding her Kinsey Millhone mysteries by more than a decade. THE LOLLY-MADONNA WAR is a gritty tale of violent Tennessee hill-country family feuding that ends in a shower of gunfire and blood: powerfully attractive themes and imagery for 1970s Hollywood, and the novel was consequently adapted into the film LOLLY-MADONNA XXX in 1973 by director Richard Sarafian, starring Rod Steiger, Jeff Bridges, and Gary Busey, among others. Only published in the U.K; rare, particularly signed. 7.25'' x 4.75''. Original bright orange cloth with gilt-titled spine. In original unclipped (£1.75) dust jacket, designed by Keith Cunningham. 189, [3] pages. Signed by Grafton on title page. Very minor scuffing to jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
