In the late 1940s comic moralist Walker Percy and novelist Shelby Foote, friends since their teenage years, began a correspondence which would last until Percy's death in 1990. The letters trace their lives from their early careers, when they were struggling fiercely and openly with their ambitions, artistic doubts and personal problems. They discuss such serious matters as the death of Foote's mother and Percy's battle with cancer, but their letters are also full of humour, good-natured ribbing and self mockery.

Tight binding; Clean, sturdy quarter cloth boards w/ gilt lettering at spine; Pages free of markings. Tiny sticker scar on back of jacket. Wrapped in protective mylar.
