Savoy, Willard ALIEN LAND
New York: E.P. Dutton & Company, Inc., 1949. First edition. Hardcover. Light wear to the spine ends, mild bumping to corner tips, else near fine; in an age-darkened, soiled, rubbed dust jacket that shows a tiny sticker shadow to rear flap.
Debut for the African-American author who helped popularize the"apologetic novel"--in which a "black protagonist attempts to advance socially, or to oppose the white power structure, and is subsequently victimized by prejudiced whites."--W.A. Low.
