Wilderness Tips by Margaret Atwood


True first edition!  Published in Toronto, Canada by McClelland & Stewart.

Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition.  

Dust jacket has some light shelf wear but is otherwise excellent; now housed in a HQ brodart jacket protector. 

Book itself is excellent; tiny scuff to front boards and some very faint spotting on bottom of text block [see last photo] .  Otherwise gorgeous.  Reads perfectly. 

In each of these tales Margaret Atwood deftly illuminates the single instant that shapes a whole life: in a few brief pages we watch as characters progress from the vulnerabilities of adolescence through the passions of youth into the precarious complexities of middle age.  By superimposing the past on the present, Atwood paints interior landscapes shaped by time, regret, and life's lost chances, endowing even the banal with a sense of mystery.  Richly layered and disturbing, poignant at times and scathingly witty at others, the stories in Wilderness Tips take us into the strange and secret places of the heart and inform the familiar world in which we live with truths that cut to the bone.
