A lovely First Edition signed by popular author, Margaret Atwood, on the title page. In brown and cream cloth & boards in a colorful dustjacket in plastic cover. In fine unread condition but for a light touch of wear at the bottom edge. The spine of the dustjacket may be very slightly faded but it is barely noticeable; otherwise a very nice dustjacket in protective archival plastic cover. Margaret Atwood has received many awards and honorary degrees over her successful writing career and her most popular works include "The Handmaid's Tale," "Cat's Eye," "The Robber Bride," and "The Blind Assassin" for which she won the Booker Prize in 2001.

Synopsis: In this acclaimed collection of twelve stories, Margaret Atwood probes the territory of childhood memories and the casual cruelty men and women inflict upon each other and themselves. She looks behind the familiar world of family summers at remote lakes, ordinary lives, and unexpected loves, and she unearths profound truths. A melancholy, teenage love is swept away by a Canadian hurricane, while a tired, middle-aged affection is rekindled by the spectacle of rare Jamaican birds; a potter tries to come to terms with the group of poets who so smother her that she is driven into the arms of her accountant; and, in the title story, the Bluebeard legend is retold as an ironic tale of marital deception. Stark and scathing at times, humorous and compassionate at others, "Bluebeard"'"s Egg" confirms once again Atwood's reputation as the pre-eminent chronicler of our times.
From the Inside Flap: The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
