Veronica by Mary Gaitskill

Veronica by Mary Gaitskill. 2005 Pantheon first edition, 227 pages. In a review for Veronica in the New York Times, Meghan O'Rourke writes, "Mary Gaitskill made her reputation as a chilly chronicler of emotional brutality and sexual sadism, earning her the apt sobriquet "the Jane Austen of sickos" from one Amazon reviewer...A book about superficiality might easily be fueled by fumes. But in Gaitskill's hands "Veronica" is a masterly examination of the relationship between surface and self, culture and fashion, time and memory."

Condition: VG. Prices marked out on front flap,
