New York: Simon and Schuster, 1961. First edition. INSCRIBED, "For John and Mary Belle with love Jack." This book, set in Stonemont which is based on Rockville, MD, we assume and based on the author's work experience, as he worked at Chestnut Lodge for a time, which was a mental institution, long closed now. Lilith is about one of the patients and her power over others. It’s probably the author’s most popular book. It was made into a movie in 1964 starring Warren Beatty, Jean Seberg and Peter Fonda. The book and dust jacket are both near fine with the barest wear.
