This is an excerpt from the autobiography of Emma Lee Paul. Paul brough suit against Alex Haley and Doubleday, claiming that Doubleday, to whom she had submitted the manuscript of her autobiography, had allowed Haley to see it and that he had used parts of her work in Roots. This case was eventually dismissed but not without some controversy and some support for Paul. She later published this short excerpt so that people could see her work and compare it to Roots. This copy is signed by Paul on the inside of the front wrapper. Interesting and scarce bit of literary ephemera. ; Signed by Author
