Edge foxing, owner's emboss, otherwise light wear; Dust Jacket light foxing and rub. Solid hardcover. ; "“I left Claude, the French rat.” This opening salvo in the verbal barrage that is Iris Owens’s sublime 1973 snarkfest After Claude is as good a first sentence as American fiction of the ’70s offers ... Mincing no words, Harriet, the laceratingly funny and thoroughly deluded antiheroine, launches her daisy-cutter diatribe with perfect economy. And, as she does throughout the book, she gets things exactly wrong. For in reality it is Harriet, a sexpot layabout and serial houseguest, who has been given the heave-ho by Claude, a reporter for French television, from his West Village apartment." - Gerald Howard; "Descent of a Woman" in Bookforum. First Edition, First Printing of Iris Owens' first novel after a series of pornographic works done in Paris under a pseudonym, capturing a train-wreck of an anti-heroine.; 206 pages.
