This book belonged to Hilary Koprowski, the inventor of the world s first effective polio vaccine. The book has his personal blind stamp imprinted on the preliminary title page and is from his personal library previously located in Wynnewood Pennsylvania. Hilary Koprowski was a famous Polish and American virologist and immunologist. He authored or co-authored over scientific papers and co-edited many scientific journals. Her fiction, which can simultaneously be howlingly funny and awesomely close to the bone, finds further reinforcement in her sense of the fragility of life, of her own life, in fact.
Her father died when she was 16 of a rare, nonhereditary disease, then always fatal, lupus erythematosus; suddenly, when she was 25, she had it too. The last 14 years of her life—she died just short of her 40th birthday—she fought a losing battle of passion, body, and even spirit against it. Near the end she told C.

The urgency she felt to draw boldly the queerness that marked souls deliberately turned from Christianity despite their conventional allegiances—mere mockeries, those— meant an increasingly queer art, too, one that, to her surprise, failed to communicate. Still she held firm. Her faith, in her religion and in her art, remained rocklike and hard.
