Shadow on the Hearth

Shadow on the Hearth


Merril, Judith. Garden City: Doubleday, 1950. First Edition. 8vo. 277pp. Black rexine. In dustjacket. Previous owner's signature on flyleaf. Price marked out in pen but dj unclipped. Slight rubbing to edge of boards. Very good in very good dust-jacket. Hardcover.

A Westchester, NY housewife survives nuclear holocaust and must figure out how to keep herself and her children safe. Why this isn't already a film staring January Jones is beyond me.

Judith Merril was the pen name of Judith Josephine Grossman, science fiction author and editor, and political activist. Rumor has it she dressed as a witch at a protest and tried to hex the Canadian Parliament. 😙👌
