Vintage, October 1994. Reprint. Paper Back. Used - Very Good. Item #286772
ISBN: 067975573X

Combining glittering wit, an atmosphere dense in social paranoia, and a breathtaking elegance and precision of language, White's first novel suggests a hilarious apotheosis of the comedy of manners. For, on the privileged island community where Forgetting Elena takes place, manners are everything. Or so it seems to White's excruciatingly self-conscious young narrator who desperately wants to be accepted in this world where everything from one's bathroom habits to the composition of "spontaneous" poetry is subject to rigid conventions.

Paper 'autographed copy' plate was affixed to front cover and is now laid in. Residue and orange rectangle with a darker orange lettering that says again 'autographed copy'. White's signature is on half title page. [194 pages]
