Typed Postcard Signed
1993. An 8" x 5-1/4" promotional postcard for Anderson's novel Sympathy for the Devil, on which Anderson has typed a short letter to Catherine Berge, thanking her for sending photographs that he may use for the jacket of his next book, Night Dogs. He mostly talks of not fitting in, teaching in academia (Boise State), but he also includes a postscript, via an attached, typed label: "P.S. -- dumb-ass Gustav [Hasford] - dying like that. He needed someone to take care of him, see that he ate, slept, etc. Judith & I went to a memorial service in Tacoma. All his Marine combat correspondent buddies there. Great guys." The postcard is signed, "All best, Kent." Fine. Anderson's Sympathy for the Devil was one of the best, and most harrowing, of the novels of the Vietnam War; Hasford's The Short-Timers, of course, was another. [#034989] $125
