Talking It Over (Vintage Books, 1992 [2000]; Canadian Reprint)


Notes on this edition: Talking It Over. Vintage Books, 1992 [2000]. Pp. 275. 21 cm. ISBN: 0394222989.

This printing appears identical to the first Canadian Vintage edition published in 1992. The copyright page states this is a “First Vintage Books Edition” and has a printing number line that reads “10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2”, but the back of the book  includes advertisements for England, England (1998) and — “NEW FROM RANDOM HOUSE CANADA” — Love, etc (2000), thus suggesting it is a reprint.
