2 Betts, Doris Heading West: A Novel
New York Alfred a Knopf Inc 1981 0394517989 / 9780394517988 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 

Signed by Author
Spine slightly slanted, free endpaper removed. DJ has very minor edgewear. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page. A bright, attractive copy.

"Nancy Finch, has consented - once again against her real wishes - to join her dumb sister Faye, and Faye's awful husband Eddie, on a vacation trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Suddenly - in the state park where they've stopped for lunch - a lone marauder appears, ties up Faye and Eddie, steals their money, and grabs Nancy. He doesn't hurt her or gag her. He simply pushes her into his car. Now she's heading west with this sharp-featured, bird-chested, laconic man with a gun whose intentions are an enigma to her. Although Nancy tries to signal for help, no one on the road seems able to interpret her desperate, muffled gestures, her masked pleas, or to distinguish between abduction and friendship.....The novel winds to a fierce pitch until nearing the awesome (and dangerous) Grand Canyon, she both confronts her truest self and encounters the agents of her unforeseen and miraculous destiny."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; Signed by Author
Price: 27.50 USD
