1 Pancake, Ann Given Ground
Hanover, NH, U.S.A. University Press of New England / Middlebury 2001 1-58465-118-0 / 9781584651185 First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by the Author
As New in an As New dustjacket. Cream-colored boards quarterbound in blue cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. Blue endpapers. 136pps. A flawless, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. The debut book of the highly-regarded author.

"...Departing from Appalachia's 150-year-old literary legacy of formula and caricature, West Virginia native Ann Pancake uses the texture of language, an intense attention to place, and complexity of characterization to recreate the region -- its tragic history and fragile culture, the interior landscapes of its people, and their deep rootedness in a threatened land. Her characters, already marginalized economically and socially, confront what many perceive as an invading outside culture, enduring and at times transcending the loss of their 'place,' both literally and figuratively. Their stories undermine the assumption that just because people don't articulate what happens inside them, nothing much is happening at all..."
