A nice collectible signed first edition by the 1983 Pulitzer Prize winner. Protected in Mylar cover. This is the story of Tashi, a tribal African woman who lives much of her adult life in North America. As a young woman, a misguided loyalty to the customs of her people led her to voluntarily submit to the tsunga's knife and be genitally mutilated (pharaonically circumcised). She spends the rest of her life battling madness, trying desperately through psychotherapy - she is treated by disciples of both Freud and C.G. Jung - to regain the ability to recognize her own reality and to feel. Very powerful. Note: We are a well-established, well-respected, ethical book dealer in business since 1991.
