More About Winner of the National Book Award by Jincy Willett
 
 
 
Overview

Set in Rhode Island, "Winner of the National Book Award" tells the story of twins who could not be more different. Abigail Mather is a woman of passionate sensual and sexual appetites, while her sister, the book loving local librarian Dorcas, lives a quiet life of the mind. But when the sisters are sought out by the predatory and famous poet, Guy DeVilbiss, who introduces them to Hollywood hack writer and possible psychopath Conrad Lowe, they rapidly become pawns in a game that leads to betrayal, shame and ultimately, murder.


Darkly comic and satirical, Jincy Willett's "Winner of the National Book Award" is unnervingly funny and disarmingly tender whether she is writing about sex, literary delusion or Yankee pretension.
