Dear Mary -
Could not get a hard cover of this except by order - up to 10 weeks. So I opted for this as I want to send it to you now.
If you care for it quite a lot - I'd like to give you a hard cover later. I re-read mine a lot. But this is at least a high quality paper back and won't fall apart in your hands.
The Tillie Olsen is a splendid hard cover - a remaindered book club edition I was able to get here. The paper of it are all poor quality. You'll relish her style - amazingly inventive and poetic, no matter what else.
Commemorations of a special time with you and Joseph.
Found in "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction" by J.D. Salinger. Published by Bantam, 1981.
