About this Item

First edition of AUTHOR'S FIRST BOOK. Author/critic Doris Grumbach's copy with a nice personal three page ALS from Clement laid in. " . . . I, however, remember you quite clearly. You were my first writing instructor (College of St. Rose, St. Joseph's Hall, Rm. 101 [I think], 1965). You read my short story "CARRIE", aloud to the class, explaining that I had written something special in an authentic voice, that reading is one of my best memories from CSR. I'd like to give you a belated thanks & let you know that I consider that day the official start of my career as a writer. . ." Fine in dust jacket with Grumbach's blurb for the book on the rear panel "If you fell in love with William Kennedy's Irish-Americans in his Albany-cycle novels, you will enjoy crossing the Hudson to Troy and its environs to meet the Malloys and their relatives, described accurately and lovingly by Mickey Clement.".
