HILD: A NOVEL, Griffith, Nicola
2 HILD: A NOVEL
Griffith, Nicola
Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2013, 0374280878 / 9780374280871

First Edition, Hardcover, Fine, Fine. Book. Balbusso, Anna and Elena
Hardcover first edition, first printing. Stated First Edition with "1" present in complete number line. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. A fine (unread) copy in fine jacket. Jacket is clean with price intact. Page block is bright without dents or marks. Alternate history novel set in the 7th century. "Hild is a book as loving as it is fierce, brilliant and accomplished. To read it felt like a privilege and a gift. I feel confident that the next time I'm faced with yet another inane repetition of 'women were oppressed so we can't write their stories,' I won't need to painstakingly educate anyone about the realities of medieval life with recourse to books and articles. 'Read Hild' will be enough." - Amal El-Mohtar, NPR.
