A collection of correspondence between Michael Fraenkel and Henry Miller, which began in 1935, on the subject of death. Henry Miller thought the two could author a long book that could become the 'longest funeral sermon in history'. The letters continued for three years until Miller gave up. It was first published in Mexico by Fraenkel between 1939 and 1941 and this is the first combined English edition, compiled and published by Fraenkel's widow. The book is illustrated with a drawing by Colman Higgins, and black and white portraits of Fraenkel, Miller, and teh playwright A. Robin, plus pen sketches by A. E. Larking.
Good plus condition. The spine has a few small scuffs and tears but the binding is in good order. Some pages remain uncut, but the contents are clean.
