LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Chatto & Windus/The Hogarth Press, London, 1983. hardcover, 8" x 5", with dust jacket. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine. Mrs Donald is a widow, living a hard life in London's East End with her five children; she has a terrifying personality and bullies her children. Frightening though she is, Mrs Donald has a kind of dignity; it is a measure of Mary Keene's achievement that in this poignant portrait of a battered child and her monstrous mother we can feel sympathy for both. The book is a fascinating literary discovery, written in the early 1950, and initially failed to find a publisher.
