The Beet Queen
NY, Henry Holt, (1986). Advance reading copy in printed wrappers. The success of the author's first novel, Love Medicine, prompted her publisher to have a larger first printing for this title--reported to be 35,000 copies--and to promote the book aggressively. Consequently, an advance reading copy in wrappers was rushed to press as a promotional giveaway for the American Booksellers Association's annual convention. The author was still in the process of making the last revisions to the novel, and so the text of this advance copy varies from that of the final published book. This is a fine copy in wrappers, and is signed by the author. [#003524] $45
