Encounters with Chinese Writers [The Author's Copy]
by DILLARD, Annie
Middletown: Wesleyan University Press. (1984). Dillard's own copy of this nonfiction account of the author's encounters with Chinese writers, both in China and in the U.S. With Dillard's notes on about a half-dozen pages and with two Post-Its on inner pages with instructions to herself, all apparently in preparation for a reading. Small sticker on the spine, stating "MINE"; an "Ex Libris Annie Dillard" bookplate on the copyright page; and a laid in note saying "Don't remove any Post-Its or other paper from these books." Interestingly, additionally inscribed by Dillard to Garry Trudeau (but obviously not presented to him) in 1987: "with all good wishes from your admirer." Dillard and Trudeau each won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 (for Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Doonesbury, respectively). Published by the press of a small university, where Dillard taught. Fine in wrappers. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. (Inventory #: 032718)
