The Brown Reader: 50 Writers Remember College Hill
NY, Simon & Schuster, (2014). The advance reading copy of this collection of original writing by Marilynne Robinson, Rick Moody, Jeffrey Eugenides, Donald Antrim, Edwidge Danticat, Susan Cheever, Lois Lowry, Andrew Sean Greer, Meg Wolitzer, David Shields, Jincy Willett, and many others reminiscing about their time at Brown. A collection notable both for the extraordinary and amusing range of experiences included and also, frequently, for its behind the scenes glimpses of these authors as, not just emerging writers, but emerging adults. Robinson contributes "Higher Learning," about, among other things, discovering the writing of Jonathan Edwards. Because of the extent to which publishers' promotional efforts have become digitally oriented in recent years, printed advance copies like this one have become increasingly scarce, even more so than they had been in prior years when their numbers were already only a tiny fraction of the numbered of copies published. Trace wear to the spine ends; very near fine in wrappers. [#031490] $125
