Other People's Lives
NY, Knopf, 1975. The author's first book, a collection of stories and a novella, signed by Kaplan on a tipped-in leaf. With a note to Pauline Kael from a Knopf publicist laid in, asking her to "take a look at these proofs" and provide a comment if she liked the book. This is the published book, not the proof, and it has a blurb by Cynthia Ozick but not Kael. Also laid in is a Knopf's "Compliments of the Author" slip, and a note with Kaplan's name and phone number. Foxing to the page edges; near fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#034555] $45
