(DILLARD, Annie). TRUDEAU, G.B.
Flashbacks: Twenty-Five Years of Doonesbury
Kansas City, Andrews and McMeel, (1995). Inscribed by Trudeau to Annie Dillard: "For Annie -- Get ready to feel old...Cheers, Garry/ Feb 1 '96/ NY." With Dillard's bookplate on the front flyleaf. Dillard and Trudeau each won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 (for Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Doonesbury, respectively). Spine- and edge-sunned; near fine, lacking the dust jacket. There was a signed limited edition put out by the Easton Press; signed copies of the trade edition are uncommon, and association copies particularly so. Trudeau provided dust jacket praise for Dillard's 2016 book, The Abundance, a "best of" selection from her works, and one gets the sense that the respect and mutual admiration of each for the other goes back to nearly the beginnings of their writing careers, over 40 years ago now.
