This copy of Harper's Magazine has light, general wear and aging with a diagonal crease of several inches in the top front right area and a slight vertical curl near the spine. Overall, this copy is VG. I am offering this copy because of the interview with Ralph Ellison who talks specifically about contemporary writers like Faulkner and Hemingway, though the essay ranges widely over many writing-related subjects. Other articles are on homosexuality, television, William F. Buckley and much more. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 146 pages View More...
