Steinbeck: A Life in Letters.
by Steinbeck, John.
A Fine copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear and and fold to the front flap. The more than 600 letters collected in this volume of Steinbeck's correspondence were culled from several thousand with the majority of them directed to his agent, a college roomate, and his long-time editor Pascal Covici. For Steinbeck, who hated the telephone, letter-writing was a preparation for work and a natural way for him to communicate his thoughts on people he liked and hated; on marriage, women, and children; on the condition of the world; and on his progress in learning his craft. Opening with letters written during Steinbeck's early years in California, and closing with a 1968 note written in Sag Herbor, New York, Steinbeck: A Life in Letters reveals the inner thoughts and rough character of this American author
