Título: Gordon Lish, TNS, 08/02/84
Condición del libro: Very Good
Typed not e signed by editor/author Gordon Lish dated Aug 2, 1984, three long paragraphs both sides, on Knopf large note-sized stationery, with Lish's handwritten corrections to typos. Unaddressed, but from references in the letter, it appears to be written to a mutual friend of Lish's and author Cynthia Ozick's (or perhaps Ozick's husband). In the note/letter, Lish counsels the addressee on apparent suicidal tendencies and liver disease and/or alcoholism; reflects on his own struggle with booze ("I quit. Easter Day. Not a drop¿ "); refers to something "shitty" Don DeLillo said or wrote about Norman Mailer; calls Charles Simmons and Harold Brodkey "brainless" in their interpretation of DeLillo's comments; and, ruminates/ complains about a concept/book he's been working on called DILATION, about, presumably, authors' expansion of word and language.

Descripción de la librería: Johnnycake Books trades in rare and collectible books of most kinds, principally in fields of literature, illustrated, childrens, architecture/design, gardening and photography. We try to offer books that are a little unusual, offbeat and unexpected: most have a strong visual or design appeal. Our descriptions present our inventory as creatively and colorfully as possible, with occassional editorial commentary. We regard condition of our books as critical to our service: most are very good or better, in collectible condition. We are generally conservative in describing a book, even if that means it doesn't sound as good as it actually might be. We welcome your comments directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.johnnycakebooks.com. Best wishes in your book collecting. Dan Dwyer
