NY, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1986). The first trade edition of this novel (preceded by the Franklin Library edition). Inscribed by the author to Annie Dillard: "For Annie, who is/ a long time whisperer-and-/ laugher-and- understander/ togetherer -/ Much love/ Mary Lee." One page corner turned; fine in a near fine, edge-sunned dust jacket. A nice inscription by the author of the Beulah quintet and the National Book Award-winning Blood Tie, and an excellent literary association. [#017269] SOLD
