ATWOOD, Margaret. Lady Oracle. (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart, (1976). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-345,(7). 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "An original and compelling work, a masterful achievement by one of themost prominent and influential authors in Canada today, 'Lady Oracle' is a mixture of the bizarre and the eeire, the terrifying and the brilliantly s atiric. Passing one woman's life through the prisom of her unique literary vision, Margaret Atwood has created a novel of lasting impact. The heroine of 'Lady Oracle' is a young woman whose sanity is threatened by the fact that the several lives she has lived sepearately and secretly are coming together and will be exposed. To avoid this she plans her own 'accidental death'. She is newly and notoriously famous as a best-selling author; her official role in life is as the shy, rather awkward wife of a perpetual radical; on the sly she writes gothic novels under a nom de plume; she is secretly having an affair with a local 'con-create' poet; and she has conceled from everyone her past as a grossly overweight child... evidence of which is in asnapshot on her dreser that she claims is that of a favourite aunt. Love, fear, understanding, suspense, sensuality and humour -- there is hardly an emotiuonal current that is not touched in 'Lady Oracle', and with a depth, vitality and wit that are rare in any time." - from the dustjacket. Slightly cocked, a few foxed spots to fore-edge, else very good in nicked, unclipped dustjacket. Signed and inscribed by Atwood to Canadian author H.R. ("Bill") Percy and his wife on the title page. 65.00

178 ATWOOD, Margaret Stone Mattress : Nine Tales. First Edition in dustjacket
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 2014, ISBN:97807710O6807 2014 97807710O6807 
ATWOOD, Margaret. Stone Mattress : Nine Tales. (Toronto) : McClelland & Srewart, (2014). First Canadian Printing. Pp (10),[1]-273,(5). 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"From the celebrated author of Alias Grace, The Blind Assasin, The Robber Bride, and most recently The MaddAddam Trilogy, comes this stunning new collection of stories, Margaret Atwood's first, since her #1 nationally bestselling collection Moral Disorder.

These nine dazzling tales speak to our times with deadly accuracy and imaginative verve. A recently widowed fantasy writer is guided through an ice storm by the voice of her late husband in "Alphinland," the first of three stories about the romantic entanglements of a small group of writers and artists. In "The Freeze Dried Groom," a man who bids on an auctioned storage space has a gruesome surprise. In "Lusus Naturae," a woman born with a genetic abnormality is mistaken for a vampire. In "Torching the Dusties," an elderly lady with Charles Bonnet syndrome attempts to cope with the little people she sees while a newly formed populist group prepares to burn down her retirement residence. In "I Dream of Zenia with the Bright Red Teeth," we remeet Tony, Charis, and Roz from The Robber Bride - but years later as their nemesis recurs in an unexpected forrn. And in "Stone Mattress, a long-ago crime is avenged in the Arctic via a 1.9 billion-year-old stromatolite.

Stone Mattress is vintage Margaret Atwood. She is at the top ot her darkly humorous and seriously playful game." (from the dj).

She discusses the 'GreyOwl Syndrome' of white writers going native; the folklore arising from the mysterious -- and disasterous -- Franklin expedition of the nineteenth cen tury; the myth of the dreaded snow monster, the Wendigo; the relations between nature writing and new forms of Gothic; and how a fresh generation of women writers in Canada have adapted the imagery of the Canadian North for the exploration of contemporary themes of gender, the family, and sexuality.Writers discussed include Robert Service, Robertson Davies, Alice Munro, E .J. Pratt, Marian Engel, Margaret Laurence, and Gwendolyn MacEwan." - from the dustjacket. Very good in crisp dustjacket. 30.00
