In the center of the title page, in black ball-point pen, is what looks to be Jessica Hagedorn's signature. I paid fifty cents for the book and left.
Is it really Jessica Hagedorn's signature? Would anyone else sign the name Jessica Hagedorn on the title page of a Jessica Hagedorn book? What Jessica Hagedorn fan asked the author to sign a paperback book and then discarded it?
The strangest part of all is this: I'm far more likely to five hours trying to authenticate the signature than I am to spend five hours to read it.
[Edit: on 25-May-2008, I compared the signature to a signed Jessican Hagedorn novel on Ebay, and the signature matches.]
