ABRAHAM, PEARL. - The Romance Reader.
Riverhead Books, New York: 1995. Hardcover with dustjacket. Like New. The world Pearl Abraham opens for us is both tantalizingly foreign and suprisingly familiar, its customs and laws at once comforting and restrictive. With apparent ease she has masterfully re-created the tensions and dilemmas that an individual must face within any community. Her extraordinary heroine, whose desire to be good is at constant odds with her impulse to sin, will live long after the book is closed, and her subject of blossoming female desire in a world that does not recognize unmarried sexual longing will resonate strongly with women of all backgrounds. ¶ 296 pages.USD 6.00 [Appr.: EURO 4.5 | £UK 3.75 | JP¥ 622] Book number 60376X1
