Book Description Momo's Press, 1981. hardcover. 1st Edition. San Francisco. 1981. Momo's Press. 1st Edition. Very Good In Hardcover.No Dustjacket. 90 pages. hardcover. Jessica Tarahata Hagedorn (born 1949) is an American playwright, writer, poet, and multimedia performance artist. Hagedorn was born in Manila to a Scots-Irish-French-Filipino mother and a Filipino-Spanish father with one Chinese ancestor. Moving to San Francisco in 1963, Hagedorn received her education at the American Conservatory Theater training program. To further pursue playwriting and music, she moved to New York in 1978. Joseph Papp produced her first play Mango Tango in 1978. Hagedorn's other productions include Tenement Lover, Holy Food, and Teenytown. Her mixed media style often incorporates song, poetry, images, and spoken dialogue. In 1985, 1986, and 1988, she received MacDowell Colony fellowships, which helped enable her to write the novel Dogeaters, which illuminates many different aspects of Filipino experience, focusing on the influence of America through radio, television, and movie theaters. She shows the complexities of the love-hate relationship many Filipinos in diaspora feel toward their past. After its publication in 1990, her novel earned a 1990 National Book Award nomination and an American Book Award. In 1998 La Jolla Playhouse produced a stage adaptation. She lives in New York City with her younger daughter. 0917672151. keywords: 41904. inventory # 15455.

Book Description San Francisco, CA: Momo's Press, 1981. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 88 pages. Published in 1981. The author's second collection of poems, prose-poems, and short stories. Limited Edition of 50 hardcover copies. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the softcover retrospective edition called "Danger And Beauty". Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Jon Goodchild and John Woo: Regular-sized volume format. Red hard boards with black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Text by Jessica Hagedorn. Fantasy-themed etchings by Richard Powell, which are an homage to the art and music of Jamaica, particularly reggae and its greatest exponent, the late Bob Marley, to whom the book is dedicated. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Jessica Hagedorn's "Petfood & Tropical Apparitions". Her best poetry collection. In a celebrated New Yorker Magazine review, Jessica Hagedorn was praised by the late John Updike, the most influential reviewer/critic in America of his time, as one of the most brilliant writers of her generation. Harold Bloom, the greatest literary critic of our time, weighed in and wrote that "Hagedorn expresses the conflicts experienced by Asian immigrants caught between cultures. She takes aim at racism in the United States and develops in her dramas the themes of displacement and the search for belonging". An absolute "must-have" title for Jessica Hagedorn collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in glossy pink pen-marker on the title page by Jessica Hagedorn. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature glows beautifully against the light. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Finalist for the National Book Award in 1990 for "Dogeaters". Voted the "Best Book of The Year" by the Before Columbus Foundation. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JESSICA HAGEDORN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0917672151. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 6313
