New York: Random House, 1980.
1st Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). First Edition Signed by Beattie on the title page. A fine copy in the publisher's original one quarter black cloth over copper paper boards, stamped copper on the spine in a near fine pc. dustwrapper. 8vo. 342 pp. Winning the praise of critics and r eviewers and established writers as diverse as John Updike and Margaret Atwood, Beattie's cultural significance lies in the devotion and self-recognition she inspires among those readers who graduated from college as the 1960's faded into the laid-back narcissism of the late 70's.
