About this Item

NEW BOOK and DJ, both MINT/ PRISTINE and with new Mylar. // NO FINER COPY EXISTS! // The Chute-the-shoots. A remarkable book which, as Chute says was "involuntarily researched. I have lived poverty. I didn't CHOOSE it. No one would choose humiliation, pain and rage." Poverty has made its mark on thousands, but the mark it made on Chute produced one of the finest works in ages. This is a beautiful first edition, and it awaits your order. Bookseller Inventory # 001528

About this title

Synopsis:

With her bestselling first novel, Chute placed Egypt, Maine, on the literary map and introduced the world to the Bean clan. â If you care about fine writing, you owe it to yourself to read this bookâ (Boston Globe). Postscript by the Author.

From the Back Cover:

There are families like the Beans all over America. They live on the wrong side of town in mobile homes strung with Christmas lights all year around. The women are often pregnant, the men drunk and just out of jail, and the children too numerous to count. In the 'Beans of Egypt', Maine, we meet the God-fearing Earlene Pomerleau and experience her obsession for the whole swarming Bean tribe. Therecousin Rubie, a boozer and a brawler, tall Aunt Roberta, the earth mother surrounded by countless, clinging babies, and Beal, sensitive, often gentle, but doomed by the violence within him.
