CLEOPATRA'S NOSE: 39 Varieties of Desire.

Edition: First printing.

New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (2007) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - A collection of essays "representing twenty years of Thurman's writing, particularly her fascination with human vanity, femininity, and 'women's work' - from haute couture to literature to commanding empires. The subjects are iconic (Jackie, the Brontes, Toni Morrison, Anne Frank) and multifarious (tofu and performance art, pornography and platform shoes, kimonos and bulimia); all inspire dazzling displays of craft, wit, penetration, and intelligence. Here we find explorations of voracity: hunger for sex, food, experience, and transcendence; see how writers from Flaubert to Nadine Gordimer have engaged with history; meet eminent Victorians and the greats of fashion." SIGNED on the title page. 427 pp. ISBN: 978-0374126513.
