First Edition USA, so stated; First Impression. Near Fine in Very Good+ DJ: Book shows remainder mark at bottom block. Binding square and secure; text clean. Dustwrapper shows 1/2” triangular tear at lower edge rear face near hinge; price intact; mylar-protected. Overall, remains a very handsome copy. This is a REMAINDER, showing a small mark at the bottom edge. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. 8vo. 201pp. Hardback with DJ. The Heart Of The Country by Fay Weldon is a brilliant, surprisingly humorous, bitchy study of adopted and original rural life. Rural industries, agriculture, and yokel identity rub shoulders with antique dealers, long-distance commuters, owners of computer stores and benefit claimants. Pretty normal stuff, I hear you say. The book examines their interactions and relationships, especially how public virtue interacts with private vice.
Very good in fair dust jacket. 201 pgs & tan cover in vg condition; dj has edgewear. A cunning Satirist, Weldon tickles the myth of the suburban countryside as a place where serenity reigns and neighbors are kindhearted. Book Club Edition.
