THE WILD SHORE. [London]: Macdonald, . Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. The author's first book. Non-utopian first book of the "Orange County" trilogy. In a keep-like enclave, a new pastoral community emerges in Southern California following a decade of nuclear winter, but the inhabitant's ignorance of the world outside is ultimately self-defeating. 1984 Nebula nominee. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-918. Hint of tanning to page edges, a fine copy in fine dust jacket. A lovely copy. (#165392).
