SMALL CEREMONIES, THE BOX GARDEN, SWANN, Shields, Carol
101 Shields, Carol SMALL CEREMONIES, THE BOX GARDEN, SWANN
Quality Paperback Club 1996 Softcover Very Good 
Large trade softcover (8.5" tall) , 3 books in one. 805 pages. Very good condition, only light wear overall. Previous owner wrote their first name across one outside edge of pages (RYAN). SMALL CEREMONIES: Judith Gill's world is shaped by the actions of those around her. As a biographer, she spends her days analyzing the minutiae of past lives. As a mother, she is perplexed by her children's developing lives. As a wife, she struggles to sympathize with and support a man who sometimes acts like a stranger. The BOX GARDEN: Charleen Forrest, Judith Gill's sister, is obsessive and hyper-romantic, a poet who no longer writes because ``having given away the well of myself, there is nowhere to go''--except inward. SWANN: Swann revolves around the papers of a fictional Canadian poet named Mary Swann, the stifled, uneducated, and almost friendless wife of a violent, poverty-stricken farmer. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

SUMMER IN THE CITY Uncorrected Proof, Sisman, Robyn
103 Sisman, Robyn SUMMER IN THE CITY Uncorrected Proof
Penguin Canada 2005 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
New & unread, no markings. It does have a little shelf wear involving two crease marks on the front cover. From Publishers Weekly: Originally published in the U. K. In a slightly different form and with the title Perfect Strangers (1998) , this spirited story by the author of the bestselling Weekend in Paris features a romance that blossoms thanks to a transatlantic apartment swap. Londoner Suze Wilding swears she'll never get married; New Yorker Lloyd Rockwell has the perfect girlfriend. They both work for the ad agency Scheider Fox, but Suze is a bit low on the totem pole on the U. K. Side and Lloyd's sort of a hotshot in Manhattan. What will bring them together? How about a month-long job exchange that also has them living on each other's turf? Everything's going swimmingly until golden boy Lloyd gets accused of leaking confidential company information and is fired, and Suze's love life implodes. The two start talking on the phone, and they decide to clear Lloyd's name. There's never any doubt that they will—and that they'll find love along the way—but Sisman offers plenty of twists and turns, and both surprisingly sad and wickedly funny scenes along the way.
