The Shipping News Signed by E. Annie Proulx 1st / 1st 1994
First UK edition and first impression published by Fourth Estate in 1994. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper has very little wear at all and isn't price clipped. The book is gently pushed to one corner otherwise is very presentable. Overall a near fine copy. In addition there is a loosely inserted bookplate signed by the author. The bookplate is from the publisher and has the fourth estate logo on it. On the inside board is also Stephen Spender's bookplate that was designed by John Craxton. Rare with the signed bookplate and it being Stephen Spender's copy.
The Shipping News won the Pulitzer Prize, the U.S. National Book Award, as well as other awards. It was adapted as a film of the same name which was released in 2001.
