Alfred A. Knopf, 1991, 1st printing. First editon hardcover book in VG condition - tight and square and unmarked. There are several small, very faint, spots on the boards. The spine ends are a little bumped.

The price-clipped dustjacket is VG- condition. It is stiiff and bright and glossy with some minor scratches and light rubbing. There is some edge wear and some tiny (less than 1/16 inch) tears at the top and bottom of the spine.

Set in the backwaters of Botswana in the years of apartheid, MATING's narrator is a wry, flippant, and unnamed graduate student who finds herself attracted to an eccentric anthropologist who has founded an utopian society in the Kalahari Desert that consists almost entirely of abused African women--beggars, prostitutes, and mistreated wives. Winner of the National Book Award in 1991, Norman Rush's polymorphic novel is full of intellectual and political thought, intriguing social insight, rambunctious and witty prose, and a refined understanding of the nature of love.

Quoted shipping rate is for media mail with delivery confirmation. Media mail generally takes 4-10 days for delivery in the continental U.S., but may take as long as three weeks (and longer to Alaska and Hawaii).
