7 Years from Somewhere
NY, Atheneum, 1979. Signed by Levine in full on the title page, and with a full-page inscription from Levine to Peter [Matthiessen] and his wife on the half title, in which Levine describes a film version entitled 7 Years from Long Island, in which he plays a shellfish terrorizing Long Island, kissed by Matthiessen's wife, transformed into a Columbia professor with tenure, but then beaten to death by Peter with his National Book Award. 75 words of short-short fiction by Levine, and an association copy, and without doubt the best Philip Levine inscription we've ever handled, or even seen. Spine-sunned; near fine in wrappers. [#032495] SOLD
