Living By Fiction
NY, Harper & Row, (1982). Reflections on writers and writing, in particular the postmodern literature of the Latin American and European avant garde, and such North American writers as Pynchon, Barth and Coover. A single, coherent, extended essay, rather than a collection of independent pieces. Inscribed by Dillard to her agent, Tim Seldes, and his wife, the author Susan Shreve. Spine ends pushed, else fine in a very good, price-clipped and spine-sunned dust jacket with several small edge chips. A nice association copy. [#029074] $150
