The Eyes of Willie McGee: A Tragedy of Race, Sex, and Secrets in the Jim Crow South. Alex Heard.

The Eyes of Willie McGee: A Tragedy of Race, Sex, and Secrets in the Jim Crow South

New York: Harper, 2010. Hardcover. 404p., 16-pg. photo section, hardbound first edition in black and tan casebinding gilt-titled and enclosed in the portrait dust jacket. Book itself is fine: entirely sound, clean and unmarked, while the dj is a bit worn with light sticker-scarring.

The case generated high-level opinion; Eleanor Roosevelt thought McGee guilty, William Faulkner et alia thought not. A young Bella Abzug was hired by Civil Rights Congress to oversee the defense. The case played out only after 5 or 6 years of contention.
