Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 156 pages. Published in 1991. Rare Bernard Malamud collectible set. Copy of "Conversations With Bernard Malamud" and Typewritten Letter Signed (TLS) on Aerogramme Mail. "Conversations With Bernard Malamud": The author's collection of interviews. Published in an extremely small and limited print run of 500 copies by a University Press as part of the now-legendary "Literary Conversations" Series. This First Hardcover Edition was sold to public libraries only and was never reissued. Should not be confused with the much more common Softcover Edition. Presents, in the most collectible format, possible a representative selection of interviews conducted by various writers, journalists, and scholars with the author. Gives a rich, complex, and lively overview of both the life and mind of one of America's most important writers. Presented in chronological order, the interviews cumulatively amount to an absorbing account of one of the greatest literary journeys of the 20th century, which is the explicit intention of the publisher with each writer who is included in the Series. "The story will be with us as long as Man is. You know that because of its effect on children. It's through story they realize that mystery won't kill them. Through story they learn they have a future" (Bernard Malamud). The accompanying letter is addressed to Dusty Sklar, an accomplished writer/interviewer in her own right. Sklar interviewed many of the major American writers of the 20th century for a project similar to the "Literary Conversations Series". Legendary figures in Bennington College, where Bernard Malamud ran the Writing Program that produced some of the finest writers today, the Malamuds maintained a literary salon, where many of the most important and influential writers of the 20th century gathered and met. Full text of the Letter follows: "March 12, 1978 Dear Ms. Sklar: My husband has asked me to thank you for quoting him in the March Bookviews. He regrets he knows no one who may be in a position to review your book. The book sounds rather interesting. Thoreau and Emerson, he says, are exemplary characters, or figures. Yours sincerely, Mrs. Bernard Malamud". She signed her name in blue pen as Ann Malamud. Every opinion expressed in the letter is a message from the writer and Ann Malamud's devotion to her reclusive husband was well-known. An absolute "must-have" collectible set for Bernard Malamud collectors. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only such set available online and has no flaws, pristine beauties. A rare set thus. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A flawless set.
