In the stranger than fiction category, A Wrinkle In Time had a difficult time getting published. According to "A Special Message from Madeline L'Engle" on the Random House web site: "After trying "forty- odd" publishers (L'Engle later said "twenty-six rejections"), L'Engle's agent returned the manuscript to her. Then at Christmas, L'Engle threw a tea party for her mother. One of the guests happened to know John Farrar of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, and insisted that L'Engle should meet with him. Although the publisher did not at the time publish a line of children's books, Farrar met L'Engle, liked the novel and ultimately published it. A Wrinkle In Time is the winner of the NEWBERY AWARD and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. This is a really nice copy, very hard to find in collectible condition.

        The Reivers. A Reminiscence.

      New York; Random House, 1962. First edition, stated first printing. [20,5x14,5 cm]. (5, 1 blank), 305, (1 blank) pp. Publisher's red cloth with red top edge, printed dustjacket. The jacket faded at spine, slightly creased at spine ends and a bit chipped at corners. The corners very slightly bumped. Contents are fine. With two laid-in articles on Faulkner, both frequently underlined. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "To Else and Helen, with love / Bill", and then signed on the title: "William Faulkner / Oxford, Miss. / 2 July 1962". Massey 193. Petersen A37d. The author's last book and the only one to be inscribed to both Else Jonsson and her daughter Helen. This is apparently one of the very last presentation copies from Faulkner, who posted the book on the third of July (cf. Blotner), was confined to bed the next day and taken to hospital on the fifth, where he died just after midnight on the sixth. That William Faulkner would be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950 had been predicted by the Swedish author, journalist and connoisseur of American literature Thorsten Jonsson (1910-1950), who admired Faulkner's works and who acted as his main introducer in Sweden. Jonsson was Dagens Nyheter's USA correspondent from 1943-46 and made his statement while interviewing Faulkner at Rowan Oak in 1946. Unfortunately, Jonsson didn't live to see his prediction come true. At the dinner party given the night before the Nobel Banquet by Faulkner's Swedish publisher, a toast was proposed for Jonsson, as "the man most responsible for our gathering tonight". Among the dinner guests was Else Jonsson, his widow, who had been invited both as a guest of honour and as a fluent speaker of English with a broad knowledge of American customs. She and Faulkner immediately found each other, and they met several times during his stay in Stockholm. Their encounter developed into a life-long passion and friendship, clearly seen in the many letters Faulkner wrote to her, and they managed to spend some time together in Paris, Holmenkollen (Norway) and Stockholm during the years to come. In his first love letter to her, dated the fifteenth of December 1950, he asks himself how he will be able to return to the USA without seeing her again. He also says that being a Noble Prize bloke is nothing compared to spending an afternoon with her. Faulkner's last letter is dated the 14th of December 1960. However, she occupied his mind during the last days of his life, as shown by this presentation copy, which reached her first after the news of his death
