Women Who Kill
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston. (1980). First. First edition. Near fine in near fine dustwrapper, with a half-inch tear on the front panel. A presentation copy, Inscribed by James Alan McPherson: "For Peter Taylor, Some bedside reading that may make you feel mean enough to get up out of bed and write. Merry Christmas, Jim McPherson." McPherson and Taylor both won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (in 1978 and 1987 respectively), as well as numerous other prestigious awards. They were good friends and fellow faculty member at The University of Virginia. They often joked that they should co-author a book to be entitled Upstairs, Downstairs in the Old South because in his youth Taylor's family employed several African-American servants, while McPherson's mother was a maid and cook in Savannah. An excellent association. .
