PRAIRIE NOCTURNE. A Novel

New York: Scribner's, 2003. Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. Press release laid as well as a reader response card. A novel set in Montana and in New York during the Harlem Renaissance, drawing on characters from Doig's most popular work. Susan Duff, the bossy, indomitable schoolgirl with a silver voice from the pages of Dancing at the Rascal Fair, has reached middle age alone, teaching voice lessons to the sons and daughters of Helen's high society. Wesley Williamson, business scion of the cattle-empire Williamson family has fallen from the heights of gubernatorial aspirations, forced out of a political career by foes within his own party who uncovered his love affair with Susan. Years later, Susan is taken off guard when Wes arrives at her door with an unusual request: to train his black chauffeur, Monty, in the ways of voice and performance. A very good plus to near fine copy in the original perfect bound light blue printed wrappers, as issued. Item #15271
