NY, FSG, (1966). His fourth novel, which deals with anti-Semitism in Tsarist Russia, and which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Inscribed by Malamud: "For Katharine and Mike/ old good friends/ Bern." The authors Michael Seide and Katharine Shattuck were long-time friends of Malamud's, with Malamud having gone so far as to call Seide an "influence" on him. It was Seide who indirectly found Malamud his agent: Seide was Henry Volkening's (of Russell and Volkening) first client, but when Seide recommended Volkening to Malamud and Malamud called the agency, Diarmuid Russell answered the phone, and Russell would remain Malamud's agent throughout his career. Seide wrote The Common Thread in 1944, and then didn't publish another book for nearly forty years. When his book The Common Wilderness was finally released, Malamud was there to blurb it, as "an original, energetic, language wrought, imaginative work by a daring writer." A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with mild fading to the spine lettering and a bit of wear to the crown. An excellent association copy of a multiple award-winning novel. [#032706] $750
