Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 314 pages. Published in 2000. The author's tenth novel. All in all, Francine Prose's best novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Francine Prose's "Blue Angel". "A satire of academia, specifically of English and Writing Departments. The setting is Euston College in rural Vermont, a place kids go to if they don't get into Bennington. A place where desperate novelists teach creative writing to rich kids who don't read. Prose, who has taught at all the hot-shot workshops, skewers both teachers and students, in the way only a true insider could. Swenson, her writing-teacher protagonist, once published a well-received novel, but is now consumed by neuroses and repressed lust, and instead of writing tends to get drunk or morose or both. When a student named Angela Argo enters his class, he feels like he is coming back to life. His resurrection into 'believing' in writing again and his eventual disappointment form the core of the novel. Prose is stunning as she directs her caustic wit at all the current academic debates: Sexual-harassment policies warning against all manner of 'touching'; deconstructionists versus Old School fuddy-duddies; Women's Studies teachers who bring everything back to the phallo-centric Man killing us all" (Emily White). As an acute and accurate observer/commentator of political correctness (PC, for short), the extreme form of liberalism and as such, the reigning ideology of our time, Francine Prose and Blue Angel" have not been, and probably will not be, surpassed. An absolute "must-have" title for Francine Prose collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Francine Prose. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Most copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws. A scarce signed copy thus. Finalist for the National Book Award in 2000 for "Blue Angel". One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine copy. ISBN 006019541X. Bookseller Inventory #
