THE TORMENTING OF LAFAYETTE JACKSON. by Rosenheim, Andrew.

THE TORMENTING OF LAFAYETTE JACKSON.

Edition: First printing.

Boston: David R. Godine, Publisher, (1998) dj. Hardcover first edition - The author's first novel - the story of two American students (who are far less devoted to books than to bottles) at Oxford and a pedantic British student who has decided that the Civil War letters possessed by a visting American lecturer - Lafayette Jackson - are counterfeit and he is determined to expose her. Publishers Weekly called this "Literate, wonderfully funny, alive with irreverent characters who would be an asset to any party and full of gossip about solemn, bed-hopping dons, this comedy limns a portrait of young men having a determined last fling. While they will never stoop to Newcastle's spiteful pedantry, they will become serious professionals in whose future the reader becomes inextricably involved." 194 pp. ISBN: 0-87923704x.

Condition: Fine in very good dust jacket (some rubbing to the dj, and minor edgewear).
