Typed Letter Signed
1994. October 20, 1994. A letter from the author of No One Thinks of Greenland, a first novel of a secret military hospital in Greenland that was widely compared to Catch-22, to Lawrence Millman, whose own book, Last Places, included the paragraph that inspired Griesemer's novel. In the letter, Griesemer calls Millman "the godfather of the book," (which at that point was apparently called Q-Base). In the published book, Griesemer lists Millman among the people "To Be Commended for Distinguished Service" and cites Last Places, p. 141 as "the spark." An interesting glimpse at the genesis of a highly regarded work of literary fiction. Folded for mailing; else fine. [#028237] $40
