Man Walking on Eggshells

Simmons, Herbert A.



Publisher’s yellow cloth boards with brown lettering and detail to spine. A little foxing to edges of text block. Otherwise a clean and bright copy. About fine. In near fine paper dust jacket with some sticker damage to corner of front panel. *** Second and final novel by this obscure American writer. A great jazz novel about a Black community in St.Louis, which starts with the death of Florence Mills in November 1927: ‘And the blues descended like a dull slate sky wrapping around a mountaintop.’
