London: Faber & Faber, (1996). UK First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the title page. Born in a commune, Jane has led an itinerant childhood with her mother and only a vague notion of her father. Years before, Tom Owens had dropped out of college to form a new kind of business; it was no time to start a family. But now he's famously successful, and suddenly a raggedy grade-school girl turns up at his house, claiming to be his daughter. This becomes yet another of his complex relationships: with Jane's mother; with his longtime girlfriend as well as her rivals fo rhis affection; and with his best friend, a wheelchair-bound scientist. How Jane helps transform this odd constellation into a stragely cohesive family, and how her father eventually discovers his true self, is revealed in this ambitious, often comic account of the pursuit and cost of greatness. A near fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket. Item #13907
