Ingalls, Rachel. I SEE A LONG JOURNEY. New York City, NY: Simon & Schuster, 1985. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 141 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second collection of novellas. Three of Rachel Ingalls' most hauntingly beautiful creations. Known as "Three of a Kind" in the United Kingdom, the title marks their first appearance in the United States. The brilliant, gossamer DJ design utilizes a black-and-white photograph by the immensely talented American photographer Matt Mahurin. Presents "I See a Long Journey", "On Ice", and "Blessed Art Thou". "In prose as unself-conscious as a child's, three macabre tales of unspoken fear and longing are spun out: Of a woman tamed to submissiveness by her husband's money and power; of a young girl who cannot imagine life without her lover; and of a priest chosen by the Angel Gabriel to bear his child" (Publisher's blurb). One of the finest storyteller-writers of the late-20th century, Rachel Ingalls is a latter-day Isak Dinesen whose theme is the ultimate, sublime mystery of human existence. Once started, it is impossible to put down an Ingalls book. A "must-have" title for Rachel Ingalls completists. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest American writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RACHEL INGALLS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0671627821. $70.00
