Item #41053 The Young May Moon. Martha OSTENSO.

The Young May Moon. New York: Dodd, Mead and Co., 1929.

First Edition. A fan of this title kindly sent us a description of the book: 'The heroine, Marcia Gunther, deeply loves her young husband, Rolf Gunther, but is frustrated by his sexual inhibitions. In a fatally wrong-headed attempt to awaken his passions she threatens to run away to another man. Regretting her rash act, she returns home in the early hours of the morning, only to discover that he has drowned himself. She then does set forth on a long inward journey of atonement, but in the end is persuaded by Rolf's best friend, the sardonic Dr. Paul Brule, to allow herself to love again---and to respond to his love for her. I have owned this book for over forty years and read it many times.' Near Fine in attractive Very Good plus dustjacket.

Price: $150.00
