Draft Letter from L. (R.) J. [Laura Jackson] to The Editor of The New York Review of Books, Undated

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 13
Identifier: 1976.

Scope and Contents

"...Mr. Paul Auster's review of two books of mine in your issue of August 7th: Communicated views of it of friends, communicated to me., impressed on me the need of comment. One thought it 'rather nice'."


"I pause over one of Mr. Auster's historical touches, reference to Robert Graves telling of Auden for his imitations of me. That is retrospective self-preening. Auden's takings from me were Gargantuan, rather comically assiduous."
