Description:
Garden City, New York: The Dial Press, 1982. First printing. Very good plus in like dust jacket.. First edition of the author's first mystery, the start of the immensely successful V. I. Warshawski series. Paretsky's series of V. I. Warshawski mysteries, featuring a hard-boiled woman detective, "may be seen as a kind of female Bildungsroman" (Porsdan), a feminist tale of of progress and development in a genre dominated by male writers and characters. As Helle Porsdan observes, Paretsky works "from within a traditional genre... to convey her feminist message" by adapting many traditionally male tropes to V. I., even as she faces gendered obstacles to solving the case. 8.25'' x 5.5''. Original cloth-backed grey boards with silver lettering. Original color pictorial dust jacket, unclipped ($14.95), designed by Terrence M. Fehr. 244 pages. Light edgewear and a couple short closed tears to jacket, light toning to inner flaps; small spot of soil to inner tail. Mild toning to edges of boards, slight fading… Read More
