Seventeen typescript letters, with some pen-and-ink edits and comments, addressed by David Stacton from a variety of locations
in Europe and the United States to his friend, James Workman. The letters, dated February 19, 1961-August 15, 1967, contain
Stackton's wry observations about the writing process, other writers, publishers, works in progress, various geographic locations,
cultures, mutual acquaintances, suggested edits to a story written by Workman, etc. The letters are all signed or initialed
by Stacton and include most of the original mailing envelopes. Of note throughout the letters is his disdain for Paris and
Northern California, particularly Berkeley, and his fondness for New Mexico.
