Life is Meals. A Food Lover's Book of Days
NY, Knopf, 2006. The uncorrected proof copy, with an autograph note from Kay and Jim Salter to their friends, Peter and Maria [Matthiessen] laid in, in part, "After all these years of talking about it..." and "With thoughts of so many shared meals, past and future." Matthiessen is mentioned on page 76, stopping by with a bluefish he'd caught an hour earlier surf-casting in the Atlantic. With corrections to the text inside the front cover and on the pages cited there in an unidentified hand. The book is well-thumbed and suffers from some dampening; a good copy in wrappers. A nice association copy. [#032522] SOLD
