Tennessee Day in St. Louis: A Comedy.

NY: Random House, 1957. First edition. Inscribed by the author "with love and kisses" to Jean Stafford, Pulitzer Prize-winning short story writer. Curiously, Talyor dates the inscription "1955"—two years prior to the publication of this work, and identifies the locale as "city". Taylor's fourth book and first play attends to a family of Southerners celebrating Tennesse Day. Taylor, Stafford, and Robert Lowell were close—Lowell and Taylor attended Kenyon College together and the three formed a close friendship that lasted through Lowell's frequent manic-depressive bouts and Stafford's alcoholism. Bound in quarter beige cloth with blue paper over boards, showing general toning and some bumps at edges, else near fine in a like variant dust jacket with no price indicated and a "3/57" code at lower front flap. Item #33371

Price: $400.00
