The View from Castle Rock

BY Alice Munro
Book Information1/1/0/CA/MS/2006/?  •  237x162x31  •  705  •  Nobel'13


"Runway" was published in 2006 by McClelland and Stewart's Douglas Gibson Books. The book departed from Munro's previous oeuvre as the stories were autobiographical that traced the historical roots of the Laidlaw family.

This is the first Canadian edition first printing with first state dust jacket that is unclipped, reflecting the correct price of $34.99. The book is bound in black clothed board with silver lettering, and has no topstain. The copyright page should have a complete number line: "1 2 3 4 5 10 09 08 07 06". 

This book is not particularly rare and a VG copy can be purchased at eBay or abebooks at about $50. This is a NF copy with a NF dust jacket and a NF book that is tight and clean. 
There are no official signed first editions but you can find signed copies of this edition. Munro's signature is rather simple, so caveat emptor.
