12 March 1988, New York. A two-page handwritten letter on separate sheets SIGNED by Ginsberg to the writer Doris Grumbach asking for her assistance in getting one of his students, Brian Jackson, into the Iowa Writer's Workshop where she was a teacher at the time. The letter is tucked into a First Edition of Barry Miles's biography of Ginsberg, SIGNED by Grumbach at the bottom of the front endpaper. The letter begins: "An excellent student of mine, Corso's, Burroughs' & Anne Waldman's at Naropa several years ago went on to get his BA in Classics inspired by his study of Pound, & continued some postgraduate Greek & Latin. Jackson is a remarkable scholar poet and extraordinarily active person -- he worked as Gregory Corso's unpaid secretary, as studious friend, classic disciple with good manners -- for several years & was my T.A. often at Naropa." But for the mailing folds the letter is Fine with very dark and clear writing. The book is Near Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent [United States]
