A Lost Rawlings Novel from the 1920's
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings,
Blood of My Blood.

Edited by Anne Blythe Meriwether.

This edition represents the first publication of Rawlings’s first sustained work of fiction.   Rawlings had submitted the novel, which is strongly autobiographical, for the Atlantic Monthly’s fiction prize in 1929, unsuccessfully.  Some time in the late thirties, she gave Julia Scribner the typescript from which this edition was edited.
