Lot 87
LOWRY, MALCOLM. 1909-1957.

Sold for US$ 610 inc. premium
LOWRY, MALCOLM. 1909-1957.
Typed Letter Signed ("Malcolm"), 1 p, 4to, Dollarton, B.C., November 5, 1947, to Hoffman, regarding his wife's novel, lightly toned.

Lowry writes an old friend to see if he can help get Margerie Bonner's latest novel reviewed. In part: "As I think I told you it was about the last book Maxwell Perkins took: he spoke highly of it to me and was in correspondence with her on the subject when he died: obviously Scribner's have confused it with her detective stories. / Opinions may differ on the horse, I think it is a magnificent piece of work ... but certainly it deserves to be taken seriously, as an Aeschylean tragedy (even if panned)."
