SIGNED on a tipped-in bookplate to the half title page by the author. Unread, unclipped and not remaindered. The interior is crisp, solid and clean. Corners are sharp and square. Bright gilt titles to spine. Usual bit of spine lean. Unclipped dustjacket is very lightly bumped to extremities, with a hint of shelfwear to show. Now protected in brodart jacket. Winner of the Governor General's Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 1995. Carol Shields was truly a Canadian literary treasure.
