142 ATWOOD, Margaret Alias Grace. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed.
McClelland and Stewart, Toronto, 1996, ISBN:077100835x 
ATWOOD, Margaret. Alias Grace. (Toronto) : McClelland and Stewart, (1996). First Printing. Pp. (14),[5]-470. 8vo, cream paper-covered boards with giltlettering to front and spine. Winner of the 1996 Giller Prize. Shortlisted for the 1996 Booker Prize. "In her astonishing new novel, Margaret Atwood takes the reader back in time and into the life and mind of one of the mostenigmatic and notorious women of mid-nineteenth-century Canada. As the sto ry begins, one-time maid-of-all-work Grace Marks is serving a life sentencein the Kingston Penitentiary for her involvement in the vicious murder of her employer, the wealthy Thomas Kinnear, and of Nancy Montgomery, his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent: after all, she was barely sixteen in 1843, at the time of the tragedy. Others think her evil or insane. Grace herself, having spent an interlude in the Lunatic Asylum in Toronto, claims now to have no memory of the murders. Dr. Simon Jordan is one of the up-and-coming men of his day in the burgeoning field of mental illness. Engaged by a group of Kingston 'reformers' and Spiritualists who seeka pardon for Grace, he listens to the account of her life -- her family's difficult passage from Ireland to Canada, then her time spent in service from the age of twelve. As he brings Grace closer and closer to the day she can't remember, he hears of the strained relationship between Kinnear and Nancy, and of the alarming behaviour of Grace's fellow-servant, James McDermott. Dr. Jordan is drawn to Grace, who manifests 'a composure a duchess would envy'; but he is also baffled by her. Still, it is the professional objective to wake that part of her mind which lies dormant. How will he do it, and what will he find? Was Grace a female fiend, a bloodthirsty femme fatale-- or a weak and unwilling victim of circumstances?" - from the dustjacket . Very good in unclipped dustjacket. Signed and inscribed by Atwood on the title page. 40.00
