First printing w/complete number line. A woman and her five-year-old daughter who is "slowly wasting away, consumed by the smog and pollution of the overcrowded metropolis that most of the population now calls home" join 18 other volunteers "to live in the Wilderness State, guinea pigs in an experiment to see if humans can exist in nature without destroying it." (I doubt it.) Shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize. Parmesan/arctic boards w/white spine lettering, 398 pages (including land acknowledgment and author's note) + brief author biography. A very nice unread copy.
