(n.p.): (n.p.). (n.d.). Bound typescript of what seems to be an unpublished novel, by a writer who specializes in murder mysteries set among the wealthy and whose mother, the actress Joan Alexander, was reportedly swindled out of $60 million by her financial adviser. Hitchcock's first novel was nominated for an Edgar Award. Her books chronicle the lives of the New York social elite, typically set in the Upper East Side and in the Hamptons on Long Island. Double-spaced, single-sided, 223 pages. Labeled "First Draft." Comb-bound in plain navy plastic covers. In an envelope address to Peter Matthiessen (but the return address is not Hitchcock's). Several penciled notations in the text in what appears to be Matthiessen's hand, confined to the first handful of pages; fine. First Edition. No Binding. Fine. (Inventory #: 032288)
