  • FIVE HUNDRED SCORPIONS. by Hearon, Shelby
    Hearon, Shelby

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Atheneum, 1987. Hardcover first edition - A very different novel by this award-winning Southern author - "With remarkable skill, Hearon takes a contemporary story of a man who leaves his wife to 'find himself,' invests it with specificity and distinctiveness, and slowly segues into the heightened realm of metaphor and myth. Discontented with his wife Peg, whom he considers volatile and foolishly enthusiastic, Charlottesville lawyer Paul Sinclair suddenly decamps to join an anthropological expedition to the small Mexican town of Tepoztlan, near Cuernavaca. Enflamed by idealism and infatuated with one of the women on the project, Paul only gradually becomes aware that he has been duped as to the purpose of the study," (PW) 306 pp. ISBN: 0-689115849.

    Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
