The Baader-Meinhof Affair by Erin Cosgrove

Published by Printed Matter (2003)
248 Pages, 17 × 10.5 cm, Paperback

The first publication from Printed Matter’s Publishing Program for Emerging Artists sees Erin Cosgrove taking the romance novel for a ride; producing a tempestuous tale of terrorism and true love. In the cloistered environment of an exclusive East Coast college, the young and the restless fall in love while romancing the ghosts of the ’70s Germany’s Baader-Meinhof gang. This send up of the romance genre comes complete with tongue-in-cheek cliff notes and commentary for the confused. A page-turning tour de force of the dangerous passions and politics of the privileged.
