Author: Shange, Ntozake
Price: $50.00
Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Macmillan
Year Published: 1977
Book Condition: Near Fine in Wraps
Edition: First Thus
The uncorrected proof copy in red wrappers of the first hardcover and second edition of her first book, a "choreopoem", previously published by Shameless Hussy Press in 1975. In the preface (not present in the earlier book) Shange writes about the opening at Minnie's Can-Do Club in Haight-Ashbury, and the eventual move to Broadway. The book became a bestseller. Except for some offsetting to the back cover quite fine. Somewhat scarce as proofs of this period often are.
