Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1989. First edition. "... the gripping story of a young man inexorably drawn into the drug underworld." -- from the dust jacket flap. INSCRIBED BY JONES on title page, "For Jane & Walter/ with best regards,/ Madison Jones/ 10/13/89." Walter Sullivan (1924-2006) was an author, critic, longtime Vanderbilt University professor, authority on Southern literature, and founding member of The Fellowship of Southern Writers, and Madison Jones (1925-2012) -- who was associated with the "Southern Agrarians" -- was a Fellowship charter member. Fine in fine dust jacket.
