About this title


Jacqueline Kirby is back, and she is an outrageously brilliant and funny as she was in her earlier, much-applauded appearances. She is in New York this time, escaping from the weather and the tedium at Coldwater College, Nebraska, where she works as assistant head librarian. By Jacqueline's reckoning the trip is a tax-deductible professional expense. She's attending a writer's conference. It is bad luck for Jacqueline and great good luck for the reader that the only conference being held in New York at the moment is a splashy, heart-studded affair for The Historical romance writers of the World. Elizabeth Peters is in full flower as she spoofs the titles, writers, and style of the genre. She introduces a gaggle of Valeries who do the writing - with samples - and their agents, managers, fans, enemies, costumes, and posturing. The satire is deft, sharp, and irrepressible entertaining. As a bonus, there is a murder mystery that produces nonstop action. And, to round out Miss Peters' generosity, we are given a swashbuckling hero with a chestful of luxuriant curly black artificial hair. 'Die for Love' offers delightful surprises from it first scene to its final resolution. Book Dust Jacket
