This, My Brother. Introduction by Meridel Le Sueur. Illustrations by Charles Sebree
Chicago: Midwest Federation of Arts and Professions, 1936. First Edition. Little-known experimental proletarian novel, clearly written under the intoxicating influence of Dos Passos, filled with odd scene jumps, poetic and onomatopoeic passages, and stream-of-consciousness interludes. The action, such as it is, takes place among striking miners and their families in the fictional southern Appalachian coal company town of "Sappers Run." Rood (1902-1974) was best remembered as a sculptor, but he devoted much of his early career to literary activities, including two years as editor of the leftist literary periodical Manuscript (Athens, OH: 1934-36). This, his only novel, includes an introduction by Meridel Le Sueur and illustrations by the African-American artist Charles Sebree. Scarce; not in Hanna or Blake. Octavo (22.5cm). Pictorial thick paper wrappers, printed in brown and black on spine and front cover; 101pp; illus. Moderate toning, wear, and soil to covers; corners a little rolled, with mild creases to extremities; internally clean and unmarked; Good to Very Good.
