1983-1986. Three typed letters signed and two typed notes signed from Epstein, novelist and Director of the Graduate Creative Writing Program at Boston University, to another writer. Epstein commiserates with the recipient after his novel is unjustly reviewed by a "feminist communist, or historian of feminists or communists or whatever, but what connection has she to literature?" He tries to coax his correspondent into teaching a workshop at B.U. In the later letters, he submits to him his curriculum vita (Rhodes, Fullbright, Guggenheim, NEA...Married, three children, condo in Brookline, Subaru wagon) and his recommendations for the Swados Prize. Frank, personal and literary. All on Boston University stationery; fine. [#012788] $125
