KRISTIN: A Reading; [Inscribed association copy].

Columbia: University of Missouri Press, (1992). First edition. Critical study of Nobel Prize-winner Sigrid Undset’s SAGA OF KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER, “a wonderful addition to the corpus of Andrew Lytle, as well as a meaningful contribution to the study of Nordic literature” (from the jacket flap). INSCRIBED BY LYTLE in a somewhat shaky hand, "To Jane and Walter/ Sullivan/ with great affection/ Andrew Lytle." Walter Sullivan (1924-2006) studied under Lytle at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop before becoming an author, critic, longtime Vanderbilt University professor, authority on Southern literature, and -- along with Lytle -- one of the founding members of The Fellowship of Southern Writers. His wife, Jane Harrison Sullivan (1923-2022), taught English literature at Aquinas College. 12mo gilt-stamped red boards; 92 pages. Review copy with publisher’s review card laid in. Fine in fine dust jacket with just a touch of minor wear. Exceedingly scarce book, especially so signed.
