"02/16/08"
[c. 2008]. A very short, autobiographical story by Foer about his then-wife, Nicole Krauss, and he adopting a stray puppy they named George (after George Plimpton, who died that same week). Typed by Foer on a 6" x 4" card and placed in a clear plastic case of the same size, back to back with a photograph of the puppy George. "02/16/08" is written on the outside of the box. Signed by Foer on the back of the story, with the sentiment, "Wishing you happy times." Part of the plastic clasp of the box is broken, so the box doesn't snap closed, else all elements fine. An interesting work by an author whose first published book, A Convergence of Birds, was inspired by the artist Joseph Cornell and his boxed artworks. [#031780] SOLD
