The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood 1st / 1st 1969
First edition and first print published by Andre Deutsch in 1969. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper is very clean and bright with only very minimal rubbing to the corner and spine ends. It is not price clipped. The book is very presentable with no issues. There is no foxing or handling wear. Overall a near fine copy.
The booker prize winning author's first novel. It is the story of a young woman whose sane, structured, consumer-oriented world starts to slip out of focus. Following her engagement, Marian feels her body and her self are becoming separated. As Marian begins endowing food with human qualities that cause her to identify with it, she finds herself unable to eat, repelled by metaphorical cannibalism..
