(Normal), Dalkey Archive Press, (1993). Maso's third book, a novel constructed of memories in the mind of a dying woman. Inscribed by the author: "For John Updike, with great admiration - Carole Maso 1993." In the title essay of her collection Break Every Rule, Maso, in commenting on gay and lesbian portrayals of desire in literature, asks, "why when we write...does it so often look like the traditional, straight models, why does our longing look for example like John Updike's longing? Oh not in the specifics -- but in the formal assumptions...does form imply a value system?" A nice inscription to a writer who was at the cultural and publishing center from a writer at the edge. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#027131] $125
