As new condition. Signed by author on title page. Dust jacket now in Brodart mylar protective (clear) cover. Dust not priced clipped. English professor Karen Pelletier is well known for her provocative manner and iconoclastic opinions, so it's no surprise that, when asked to name the Greatest Book of the Twentieth Century, she perversely cites a commercial blockbuster from the 1950s. A reprint version of Oblivion Falls, the only novel by Mildred Deakin who disappeared shortly after its publication, quickly becomes the hottest book around, an Oprah's Book Club selection and a New York Times bestseller.At the height of the media frenzy, a reporter who discovers the reclusive author on a goat farm in upstate New York, is found dead in her driveway. Would the once-notorious Milly Deakin shoot to kill in order to protect her privacy? The intrepid Professor Pelletier deploys all her literary and investigative skills to exonerate the now-embattled older woman and restore her hard-won peace. ; 0.97 x 9.55 x 6.4 Inches; 272 pages; p; Signed by Author

Ruyl was an American Born (1870) artist famous for his painting of Rockefeller Center, 1939. This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition. "Even though the text dates from 1918, it is incredible how much of what the author describes (landmarks, beaches, buildings, customs) still exists today. And how many of the concerns of a century ago (over-development, automobile traffic, over-fishing) persist! Also interesting are the people and places lost to history, but whose tales live on in current Cape museums, books, and tourist attractions. Descriptions of Cape towns are beautifully written, and accompanying sketches are lovely." Reviewer. Very clean contents.; B&W Illustrations; 12mo; 239 pages
