The Givenness of Things [American/British Hybrid Advance Copy]
by ROBINSON, Marilynne
NY/London: FSG/Virago. (2015). A hybrid advance copy of this collection of essays: American sheets bound into Virago wrappers to be used as a British proof copy. With a Virago press release laid in. Robinson's ninth book after four books of fiction and four books of nonfiction, which together brought her a Pulitzer Prize, two National Book Critic Circle Awards, and an Orange Prize. Although her fiction is most closely associated with the American Northwest and Midwest, her first work of nonfiction, Mother Country, exposed the downsides of a British nuclear reprocessing plant. These essays return to her mainstay themes of Calvinist liberalism. Robinson, who was interviewed by President Obama in 2015, received a National Humanities Medal from the President in 2012. Fine, but fragile: the perfect binding is not of the highest caliber. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. (Inventory #: 032825)
