Presents, in her only Limited Edition format thus far, Barbara Kingsolver's "High Tide In Tucson", her debut collection of essays. "In these twenty-five essays, she returns to her favored literary terrain to explore the themes of family, community, and the natural world. With the eyes of a scientist and the vision of a poet, Kingsolver writes about notions as diverse as modern motherhood, the history of private property, and the suspended citizenship of humans in the animal kingdom. Her canny pursuit of meaning from an inscrutable world compels us to find instructions for life in surprising places. Defiant, funny, courageously honest, 'High Tide In Tucson' proves once again that there is no one quite like Barbara Kingsolver in contemporary literature" (Washington Post). Beautifully supplemented with original art by Paul Mirocha. An absolute "must-have title for Barbara Kingsolver collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Barbara Kingsolver. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Orange Prize in 2009 for "The Lacuna". One of the greatest living American writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BARBARA KINGSOLVER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
