Acclaimed author Francine Prose, in her new novel THE VIXEN, tells the story of a young man working in publishing in 1954, who is put in charge of a bodice ripper based on Ethel Rosenberg, a work meant to capitalize on the lurid fascination of a seemingly ordinary woman who along with her husband was given the electric chair for the crime of espionage.  As she did with her past NYT bestselling novel LOVERS AT THE CHAMELEON CLUB, Paris 1932, Prose, blends history into a mesmerizing narrative that shows complex, besieged characters struggling to become their true selves at a moment in time that seems eerily similar to our own. The publisher will be HarperCollins.
