The Givenness of Things
NY/London, Farrar Straus Giroux/Virago, (2015). Two advance copies of this collection of essays: the American advance reading copy, signed by Robinson, and a hybrid advance copy that uses American sheets bound into Virago wrappers as a British proof copy. This was 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. Robinson, who was interviewed by President Obama in 2015, also received a 2012 National Humanities Medal from the President. The U.S. arc is fine in wrappers; the U.K. hybrid is fine, but fragile: the perfect binding is not of the highest caliber. A Virago press release is laid in. [#033487] SOLD
