1 Kingsolver, Barbara Homeland and Other Stories
New York Harper & Row 1989 0060161124 / 9780060161125 First Edition, First Printing Original Cloth SIGNED by the Author
[1989]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Bound in full beige cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. Beige endpapers. 244pps. There is a small pencil-erasure of price in the upper corner of the ffep., otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a slight touch of crinkling at the head of the spine; the original price (16.95) is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of Kingsolver's second book, a collection of short stories. ".Fulfilling the promise of her highly praised and beloved first novel, Barbara Kingsolver gives us a rich and emotionally resonant collection of twelve stories. In 'Homeland,' she has spread her characters over a wide landscape: northern California, the urban Southwest, the hills of eastern Kentucky, the rural Midwest, and the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. In every setting, though, elements of 'southern writing' remain, and her distinctive voice rings true. Drawn with empathy and humor, the people in these stories are bound by a strong sense of place and, especially, the compelling ties of one human to another. With disarming honesty -- at times comic but often heartrending -- Barbara Kingsolver explores the twin themes of family bonds and the life choices one must ultimately make alone. She creates a world of love and possibility that readers will want to take as their own."
