1 Now I Know Everything Postman, Andrew
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1995 Crown. Very clean; no marks. Light wear to jacket. 246pp. Language: English. 'Postman's witty first novel is based on his own experience at Glamour magazine, where for 4 years he was the anonymous male voice behind the column Jake: A Man's View. As the novel opens, the narrator, who shares the author's name, is about to be named Vince, the sensitive yet virile masculine presence at a woman's magazine. The supposed anonymity of Vince notwithstanding, he finds that when he reveals his identity as the man behind the myth, he becomes instantly popular with women who want to help him gather material for his columns, though most of these encounters are, ironically, unconsummated. Andrew zigzags his way through the gossipy, cutthroat Manhattan publishing world and the myopic, pretentious social scene of his Ivy League graduate friends, making clever observations on gender politics but growing increasingly antagonistic toward his increasingly gutter-minded, cynical alter ego.'--Publishers Weekly.
