About This Item

Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1969, 1969. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION PRESENTATION COPY. 1 vol., publisher's original pink cloth backed boards, gilt lettered spine, inscribed by Atwood on the half-title "For Bart & Roby best wishes Margaret Atwood 1975", with the pictorial DJ, not price clipped, FINE/VG+. The author's first novel, scarce, especially signed.


The Edible Woman, a 1969 novel that helped to establish Margaret Atwood as a prose writer of major significance, is the story of a young woman whose sane, structured, consumer-oriented world suddenly slips strangely out of focus. Following her engagement, Marian feels her body and her self are becoming separated. As Marian begins endowing food with human qualities that cause her to identify with it, she finds herself unable to eat, repelled by metaphorical cannibalism.
