Gilead
NY, Farrar Straus Giroux, (2004). Her second book of fiction, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This is a later printing, but is inscribed by Robinson to Barry Lopez: "For Barry Lopez -- I remember with great pleasure my visit to your home -- the moonlit woods, the telescope -- all so beautiful! Marilynne Robinson." Laid in is both an autograph letter signed from Robinson to Lopez, and a retained copy of a 2006 typed letter from Lopez to Robinson, thanking her for the inscription, explaining why he missed her in Portland, and detailing his plans for a conference in Bali "to address world-wide problems in a practical way." (Robinson had been in Portland for Literary Arts; another note laid in from "Elizabeth" at Literary Arts to Lopez expresses wishes that he had been able to attend.) The letters are folded, else fine; the book is fine in a fine dust jacket, with the Pulitzer Prize label. A nice association copy, with a warm inscription. [#035207] SOLD
