Correspondence
(1980-1981). Three autograph letters signed (two on personal stationery; one written inside a card) to another writer, praising his recent story in The Atlantic and his current novel. Kaplan is especially taken with the Jewishness of the recipient's work: "I think it's very rare to find such a daring, honest, wonderful story that is a genuinely Jewish story in a national magazine. (First of all, I think very few stories of that description are being written)....you've captured an attitude, a spirit in this story that except for the very early immigrant writers (& some of them were primitive so not "art") that has been either unknown or buried in the mainstream of American Jewish fiction." All items fine. [#012866] $70

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
