A brilliantly original examination of the many aspects that make up a life-from birth, up and over the hill, and into the wilderness of old ageA truly astonishing and original work of fiction, Wrinkles is the story of a life lived forty-four times, from childhood to adulthood to old age.

The belles lettres papers : a novel by Charles Simmons( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and German and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The everyday insanity of life at a fictional literary review The journal Belles Lettres has a long and storied history, which is what enticed young editor Frank Page over its threshold in the first place. But Frank did not anticipate the infighting, backstabbing, and utter oddity that are all business as usual at the respected magazine. Still, nothing can match Frank's thrill at discovering a new literary phenom. But the book industry seems to be on the decline. Integrity is going extinct as conglomerate giants gobble up smaller organs and trample innovation and daring into the muck of commerciality. At least Frank's position gives him a front-row seat at the publishing world's fight of the century, as deposed editorial icon Jonathan Margin takes on self-serving corporate overseer Newbold Press in an ink-splattered battle to the death
