Princess Daisy
"The most sought-after rare books are often copies annotated or inscribed by authors. The books that an author actually reads, and then annotates in the margins, can be important to literary history for they reveal how an author intimately responded to a piece of literature. . . This particular volume represents an "association" book for it connects two great authors of the 20th century and records the reactions of one genius to another. The collection also connects Fitzgerald to writers outside his generation with Sylvia Plath's annotated copy of The Great Gatsby."
Contains: Commentary
