bieige end-papers; blue paper-covered boards with black cloth spine; In Willa Cather's eighth novel, first published in 1926, through the eyes of a young girl, Nellie, we view the life of Myra, a legend in the Southern town where both were born. Myra has romantically abandoned the luxury she was born into to elope with the impoverished Oswald Henshawe. Twenty-five years later, Nellie is dazzled when she meets them living in the elegant poverty of an apartment frequented by singers, actors, poets - in the heart of the artistic community of old New York. But this shabby gentility gives way to real poverty in a jerrybuilt West Coast hotel, and the high purpose of Myra's life - love itself - is revealed to be the enemy within. A finely wrought study of the great rewards and punishments love brings, 'My Mortal Enemy' is an exquisite example of Willa Cather's art. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 122 pages.
