(KAEL, Pauline). MARCUS, Alan
(Burlingame), (Chrysalis West), 1965. Contains "Miracles, a Cinematic Romance" by Marcus. Laid in is a typed letter signed by Marcus to Pauline Kael inviting her to Acapulco and soliciting literary favor, by asking her help in getting an excerpt from his work-in-progress published. Marcus' first novel was Straw to Make Brick and his second, Of Streets and Stars, was a Hollywood novel, as was the work excerpted here -- presumably why he was writing Kael and soliciting her help; they had a mutual friend in Ernest Callenbach (author of Ecotopia, among others). The letter is edge-sunned and edge-chipped and folded; very good. The magazine is the second issue, which tips in the final pages, completing Marcus' piece, which he has hand-corrected. Near fine.

(KAEL, Pauline). KIZER, Carolyn
Port Townsend, Copper Canyon Press, 1984. A collection of "Poems for Woman." Inscribed by Kizer to Pauline Kael in January, 1986: "For Pauline, a thin response to her fine fat new book! Love, Carolyn." Kael's Taking It All In had been published in 1984. This is the simultaneous issue in wrappers of Kizer's book; fine. [#022730] $60
NY, Holt Rinehart Winston, (1984). The simultaneous issue in wrappers of this collection of reviews from the early 1980s and including the essay "Why Are Movies So Bad?" Fine. [#024099] $20
