Strange Brother


Blair Niles (Mary Blair Rice) 
New York Times Best Seller List

[Book appears to be first edition but jacket 
states "seventh printing"] Jacket discolored / 
cum-stained and worn at edges and foot of spine; 
tear at top of spine; spine faded and worn out 
from tres much handling and re-reading by 
gawd knows how many fags over time. Boards 
worn; slightly curved at corners and top of 
spine; bottom of spine slightly crushed. 
Endpapers discoloring and small pencil mark. 
Page edges rough cut; otherwise clean. 

A platonic relationship between a handsome
heterosexual young man and his gay brother in 
New York City during the Harlem Renaissance.
Tres risqué and truly ahead of its time.
