Simpson, Mona. THE LOST FATHER. New York City, NY: Vintage Contemporaries, 1993. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 506 pages. Fine. Signed.

The author's second novel. The first appearance of the title in the Softcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent printings. The dark sequel to her luminous debut novel, "Anywhere But Here". In her highly acclaimed first novel, Mona Simpson created one of the most astute yet vulnerable heroines in contemporary fiction, Mayan Atassi, formerly Mayan Stevenson. She returns in an immensely powerful novel about love and lovelessness, fathers and fatherlessness, and the loyalties that shape us even when they threaten to destroy us. "A breathtaking piece of fiction. Simpson is a writer who can break our heart and mend it in the same sentence" (The Cleveland Plain Dealer). A "must-have" edition for Mona Simpson collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in red fountain pen on the title page by Mona Simpson. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This copy is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy.
