“The latest from the aptly named Francine Prose is The Vixen
, a surprisingly funny tale involving Ethel Rosenberg and the C.I.A.,” writes Elizabeth A. Harris for the New York Times
. “[Prose] teaches literature at Bard College, offering classes like Ecstasy, Obsession, and Oblivion and Totalitarianism in Literature, and at the Eastern Correctional Facility through the Bard Prison Initiative.” The Vixen
is out today from Harper.
