The Magician's Girl
NY, Macmillan, (1987). A novel by one of the great American "women of letters" -- novelist, biographer, critic, essayist, memoirist -- and a proto-feminist author, who wrote about women's issues and perspectives before the term "feminist" had even come into use. Inscribed by Grumbach to the former President of the University of Iowa and later Dartmouth College and his wife "in true friendship" in November, 1986 -- i.e., two months prior to publication. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Long blurb by Cynthia Ozick on the rear panel. [#021973] $40
