About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Atwood on the title page. Fine in a Fine jacket, unclipped ($16.95). Quarter blue cloth with grey paper on the boards, a bump at the top edge of the back board. Square and firmly bound, clean internally. In addition to its favorable reception upon its original publication--winning the Governor's General Award and being nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Nebula Award, and the Booker Prize--the novel's reputation has only grown in recent years with the Hulu series and Atwood's writing the long-awaited sequel, The Testaments.
