Encounters with Chinese Writers
Middletown, Wesleyan University Press, (1984). Dillard's own copy of this nonfiction account of the author's encounters with Chinese writers, both in China and in the U.S. With Dillard's notes on about a half-dozen pages and with two Post-Its on inner pages with instructions to herself, all apparently in preparation for a reading. Small sticker on the spine, stating "MINE"; an "Ex Libris Annie Dillard" bookplate on the copyright page; and a laid in note saying "Don't remove any Post-Its or other paper from these books." Interestingly, additionally inscribed by Dillard to Garry Trudeau (but obviously not presented to him) in 1987: "with all good wishes from your admirer." Dillard and Trudeau each won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 (for Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Doonesbury, respectively). Published by the press of a small university, where Dillard taught. Fine in wrappers.
