Autograph Letter Signed
1958. An autograph letter signed from Miller to editor and publisher Pascal (Pat) Covici, regarding R.K. Narayan's book The Guide. A full page, plus one margin, of Miller's writing in pencil, praising Narayan's book and asking about others. Two passages are bracketed in red, presumably by Covici, and marked "excerpt." In the second of these, Miller writes, "I was amazed that a man of his world could exhibit such a modern technique. To boot, he's a born story teller. With a fine sense of the tragi-comic." Dated in Big Sur, 6/13/58. Another hand has added, "File H. Miller." Browned, else fine. Good literary content. [#033645] $500
