Subject: Genie

Hello everyone. One of my 'Language Acquisition and Development'
course asked me today about Genie: 'Is she still alive?' 'Is it still
possible to buy copies of Susan Curtiss' book (1977)? I did not find
anything about it today. Could you please ilustrate me about this?

Thank you very much
