This copy is free from previous owner's ink. Overall, this is a very good ++ copy.
The story of an alcoholic, Brick Pollitt, who tried to regain his self-respect with the help of his mistress, his doctor's widow. When he was with his mistress, he was winning his fight against alcoholism, for she loved him and gave up her reputation in the town. Brick's wife, on the other hand, had gained all the self-respect that he himself had lost. She seemed to take it from him deliberately. By the end of the summer his wife had driven his mistress from the town and had conquered him completely.
