The End We Start From
NY, Grove, (2017). Two volumes: both the advance reading copy of the first U.S. edition and the first U.S. edition, each with its own review material laid in (both of which include a copy of Hunter's article on climate fiction written for the Times Literary Supplement). A woman gives birth and days later is forced to leave her home when London is submerged by flood waters: Hunter "traces the remarkably thin line that can separate a citizen from a refugee," asking, "when the worst happens, what is left? How does life go on?" This is the title's "the end we start from." The book is fine in a fine dust jacket; the review material folded and laid in. The advance copy, which has a different cover illustration, is fine in wrappers; the review material is edge-creased. Advance copies with substantive promotional material are both uncommon and, we think, bibliographically significant. [#033614] SOLD
