Mother Country
NY, Farrar Straus, (1989). The uncorrected proof copy of the Pulitzer Prize winner's second book and first work of nonfiction, following the much-acclaimed novel Housekeeping. Mother Country (later Mother Country: Britain, the Welfare State, and Nuclear Proliferation) examines the environmental, economic and social impacts of the Sellafield nuclear power plant in Great Britain, an investigation gaining renewed relevance as nuclear energy gains traction as a "green" alternative to fossil fuels. Two pages (142, 194) have blacked-out edits; small "x" and publication information inked in on front cover; fine in wrappers with a brief author bio laid in. Mother Country was a finalist for the National Book Award for Nonfiction. [#035889] SOLD
