Killers of the Dream

Lillian Smith

Anchor Books, New York, 1963. Revised Edition.

Creasing to cover and rear; light staining to cover; inscribed by previous owner. Good.


A lovely pocket-sized edition of this controversial classic of Southern cultural criticism. Smith was a lifelong educator and advocate for racial and sexual equality, and this work best summarizes her time growing up in the south, deftly weaving together memories of her childhood with a razor-sharp understanding of the sexual, political, and racial systems of oppression she grew up under. Stunning work.
