  • Rubens, Bernice.

    Edition: First US printing.

    New York: Summit Books, (1980.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Although Bernice Rubens has been highly praised, and the winner of the prestigious Booker award in England for her novel 'the Elected Member,' her novels are almost unknown and underappreciated in the US. This story of a cross-dressing teacher trying to escape a boring marriage but who finds himself trapped in the identity of 'Emily' is both wickedly funny and rather sad. In this book Rubens has made even murder funny. ISBN: 0-671-400819.

    Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket (remainder mark.)
