[EAN: 9780312424237], [PU: Picador], Fiction|Horror|Black Humor, Fiction|Humorous, Fiction|Psychological, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "The funniest novel I have read, possibly ever. Brilliant, totally original, and worthy of its title. I promise you will laugh constantly and to the point of stomach damage."- -Augusten Burroughs, author of Running With Scissors and Dry "Riotous . . . hugely funny . . . Willett's satirical abilities remain deliciously undimmed. . . . A wicked treat. . . . Amid the antic, hilarious, gender-bending battle of the sexes that Ms. Willett whips up in this book, either one may qualify as a reason to kill. Either that, or to die laughing." --Janet Maslin, New York Times "The author mows down worlds of artistic and psychological twaddle with killer sprays of language. Willett is effortlessly, furiously funny. . . . A." --Entertainment Weekly "Read the title with a snort that echoes across the room, and proceed from there.unnerving, scabrously funny.a spectacularly toxic novel." --The Onion "Willett plays artfully with narrative structure. . . . It's Dorcas' jaded take on every Yankee pretension, psycho-babble truism and literary delusion she encounters that makes this gothic tale so amusing." --Seattle Times "She writes for the joy of reading, not for the puffed-up pride of having written, and we're the ones who run off with the prize." --New York Times Book Review "Dorcas' deadpan narration is perfect. . . . Willett's hapless characters are, in the end: grotesquely flawed, hugely funny, but human." --J.L. Johnson, Boston Herald "A sharp, highly original satire." --Time Out "A hilarious black comedy . . . brilliantly constructed and unabashedly vicious . . . Nothing escapes [Willett's] notice, and Dorcas' keen view of the world is richer for that fact. And so are we." --Miami Herald

[EAN: 9780312424237], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Picador USA; St. Martin's Press, New York], Fiction|Horror|Black Humor, Fiction|Humorous, Fiction|Psychological, 323 pp.; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. "Winner of the National Book Award, the long-awaited novel from the author of the acclaimed collection, Jenny and the Jaws of Life, is an unusual and wonderful novel that is somehow able to be at once bleak and hilarious, light-hearted and profound. It's the story of two sisters. Abigail Mather is a woman of enormous appetites, sexual and otherwise. Her fraternal twin Dorcas couldn't be more different: she gave up on sex without once trying it, and she lives a controlled, dignified life of the mind. Though Abigail exasperates Dorcas, the two love each other in fact, they complete each other. They are an odd pair, set down in an odd Rhode Island town, where everyone has a story to tell, and writers, both published and unpublished, carom off each other like billiard balls. What is it that makes the two women targets for the new man in town, the charming schlockmeister Conrad Lowe, tall, whippet-thin and predatory? In Abigail and Dorcas he sees a new and tantalizing challenge. Not the mere conquest of Abigail, with her easy reputation, but a longer and more sinister game. A game that will lead to betrayal, shame and, ultimately, murder. In her darkly comic and unsettling first novel, Jincy Willett proves that she is a true find: that rare writer who can explore the shadowy side of human nature with the lightest of touches. / Jincy Willett is a writer and editor based in San Diego, CA. Her short stories have appeared in Playgirl, The Yale Review, and the Massachusetts Review." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

Set in Rhode Island, "Winner of the National Book Award" tells the story of twins who could not be more different. Abigail Mather is a woman of passionate sensual and sexual appetites, while her sister, the book loving local librarian Dorcas, lives a quiet life of the mind. But when the sisters are sought out by the predatory and famous poet, Guy DeVilbiss, who introduces them to Hollywood hack writer and possible psychopath Conrad Lowe, they rapidly become pawns in a game that leads to betrayal, shame and ultimately, murder. Darkly comic and satirical, Jincy Willett's "Winner of the National Book Award" is unnervingly funny and disarmingly tender whether she is writing about sex, literary delusion or Yankee pretension.
