THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT

by Tevis, Walter

Condition: See description


New York: Random House, (1983). First edition, advance reading copy, very good or better in glossy paperwraps. Publisher's coffee-splattered form letter to potential paperback-rights' seekers laid in along with reader Fred Chase's typed, internal "Avon Books Reader's Report," which is glowing ("The book is beautifully written--I can't remember one false note"), speaks to the book's marketability, and is perhaps prescient in noting: "I can see a number of publishers bidding for this, driving up the price and virtually destroying any chance to make a little money on it." Avon didn't publish the paperback.

Walter Tevis was an English literature professor at the University of Ohio. He is the author of seven books, including three that were the basis of major motion pictures: The Man Who Fell to Earth , The Hustler , and The Color of Mone y . His other books include Mockingbird, Far From Home and The Steps of the Sun . He died in 1984.
