Typed Letter Signed
August 12, 1985. One page, single-spaced. A passionate letter to another writer which begins with a simple confirmation of her agreement to give a reading and then launches into a heartfelt and angry commiseration regarding unfair negative reviews both she and her correspondent received in The New York Times Book Review: "...what bites my bones and curdles my heart, is the fact that the Times lets this shit stand. Let the editors edit...Let them demand that a man at least make his case...Let us know what we're dying for." Folded in thirds for mailing; else fine. [#012997] $45
