About this Item

DREISER, Theodore. Typed Letter Signed to David Karsner, dated Aug. 20, 1922 in original mailing envelope. An interesting letter to David Karsner, editor of the New York Call, a socialist magazine. Dreiser writes to "Dear Karsner" thanking him for interest in a series and offering suggestions on how to approach editors. "It is my plan to write quite a number of these, - -enough from which to select a book. (I wrote of more men than appeared in Twelve Men, but destroyed the others.) It follows that if only one or two of those ready appealed to him, and the others did not, still he would be safe in contracting for the series as a whole for he would have all of those yet to be done from which to select." Karsner had covered Eugene Debs's trial and was commissioned by Debs to write his 1919 biography, Debs: His Authorized Life and Letters from Woodstock Prison to Atlanta. An good example of the working author selling his wares. In fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 54223
