Typed Note Signed
1999. July 5, 1999. Several short paragraphs in which Offutt agrees to sign a book and thanks his correspondent for writing: "Writing is an isolating act and it is terrific to hear from the world beyond my room...I appreciate knowing that these stories are able to reach someone whose background and experience in life are different from my own." He goes on to say he's moving, "...leaving Kentucky again forever. This is the sixth departure of my adult life. Fodder for the next book I suppose." In 1999, Offutt published Out of the Woods, a collection of stories about characters who left Kentucky. His next book, No Heroes, in 2002, was a memoir about returning. Signed by the author. Folded for mailing; fine, with hand-addressed envelope. [#016357] $60
