London: W. H. Allen. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj. 1983. First Edition. Hardcover. 0-491-03110-6 . [light browning to page edges, mild spotting on half-title and title pages, slight fading to cloth at bottom of front cover; jacket shows moderate surface- and edge-wear, no tears or chips]. INSCRIBED ("To _______ with pots of love") and SIGNED by the author on the title page. Gender-bending version of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson story, set in New York and featuring a shy Scottish girl who becomes a ruthless sexual predator as she tries to deal with her other self, "a self that compels her to reject the habits of a lifetime, that forces her to take lovers she can devour and humiliate, that leads her into the underground life of the city to quench the lustful thirst that now rages in her soul." Includes a jacket blurb by actress Diana Dors, who by an amazing coincidence had starred in a British TV adaptation of "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" just two years before, and was therefore, apparently, qualified to review this "sexually terrifying, brilliant book." Signed by Author . (Inventory #: 14053)
