Lincoln, NE: Backinprint, 1999. Lincoln, NE, Backinprint, 1999. Unknown edition. 8vo. Paperback, 129 pp. This was Mary McCarthy's second novel and a brilliantly funny satire about a group of urban American intellectuals who try unsuccessfully to establish a rural utopia colony, just as the Cold War is setting in and fear of atomic warfare is reaching panic proportions. A few of McCarthy's friends thought they recognized themselves in the characters and this book ruffled more than a few feathers but the woman who would become her closest friend, Hannah Arendt said: " it is a pure delight. You have written a veritable masterpiece." A truly enjoyable romp! New.. Unknown. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
