Fans of "Youth in Revolt" rejoice! Here restored at last are nearly 100 pages of text cut from the 1995 and later U.S. and U.K. editions. Each passage is keyed to the page from which it was deleted for ease in reading.
Now you can discover what happened to Lefty in Book II. Did he really have that rumored operation? Did Millie Filbert try to seduce Nick or was he just imagining it? What happened at Grannie DeFalco’s funeral after the drinking began in earnest? Who ratted on Nick to the Berkeley police to collect the reward? Why did Nick plan that elaborate Halloween deception? Who was he trying to fix up with his former teacher? And more.
Besides filling in the missing plot elements, the restored passages round out the characters to reflect the author’s original vision. Also collected here are C.D. Payne humor pieces composed over the past two decades. Read about an intergalactic alien who touches down in an English garden. Discover the dating habits of Silicon Valley singles. Peruse class notes that you’re not likely to read in your college alumni magazine. Learn how to put the sizzle in a sophisticated love scene. A dozen selections in all.
