$28.00

Margaret Atwood’s fiction is almost unprecedented in its equal acclaim from the general public and critics alike. With The Handmaid’s Tale, she provided us with one of the best speculative fiction novels of the last 100 years, but her other works should not be overlooked. Virtually every novel she has published has been a critically acclaimed bestseller, including Life Before Man. The work introduces three main characters–Nate, Elizabeth, and Lesje. They are connected by marriage and affair, each with their own chapters portraying the conflicts of such turbulent romance in different ways. The novel also addresses themes of identity and familial history. It is one of Atwood’s earliest novels, preceding The Handmaid’s Tale.

This first American edition is in fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine first American edition of one of Atwood’s earliest novels.
