Housekeeping.

Robinson, Marilynne

New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1981. First edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's memorable first novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by the author on the title page, who has added a well-known line from this title, "I believe it was crossing the bridge that changed me finally- Marilynne Robinson." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket art by Robert Sabin. Designed by Cynthia Krupat. An exceptional example. "Here's a first novel that sounds as if the author has been treasuring it up all her life . . . You can feel in the book a gathering voluptuous release of confidence, a delighted surprise at the unexpected capacities of language, a close, careful fondness for people that we thought only saints felt" (The New York Times). In 2003 Guardian Unlimited named it one of its 100 greatest novels of all time, describing it as a "haunting, poetic story, drowned in water and light." It is the basis for the 1987 movie directed by Bill Forsyth and starring Christine Lahti.

Housekeeping (Signed First Edition)

Robinson, Marilynne

New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1980. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Near Fine, with the slightest bit of toning to the top edges of the boards. In like jacket, pristine but for a Scribner's price tag to the head of the front flap. Signed by the author on the title page. The Guardian has hailed Housekeeping as a "haunting, poetic story drowned in water and light, about three generations of women." Ruthie narrates coming-of-age as she and her sister Lucille experience it -- raised by a succession of relatives and never fully secure in their home life. Together, the girls face abandonment and loss, then transience as their aunt Sylvie absconds with them following court accusations that she has risked their well-being. For Ruthie, the concept of housekeeping becomes more spiritual than literal, and she seeks stability by developing an internal sense of home and self. Adapted soon after its release into a film starring Christine Lahti, Housekeeping has appeared on numerous lists of the 20th century's best novels. Guardian 100 Greatest Novels. Time 100 Best English Language Novels. Pen-Hemingway Award Winner. Pulitzer Prize finalist. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
