Miller, Henry



Autograph letter signed



Autograph letter signed, two pages (both sides), 8,5 x 5,5 inch, personal stationery, Pacific Palisades (California), 31.01.1979, reply letter to Mrs. Diethelm - inter alia concerning his opinion of American literature and the work of Isaac Singer, written and signed in black felt tip "Henry Miller", with a vertical letter fold - in nearly very fine condition. Accompanied by the original envelope. "Dear Frau Diethelm - I think you must be some sort of idiot to ask me such a favor. I am half blind and have to struggle to answer my mail. In a few words I can give you my opinion of american literature. It is full of shit! I hope you understand. Isaac Singer, whom I refere, is a Jew whose work is translated from the Yiddish, not Hebrew. (over) / As he says of yiddish; it is the only language in the world which has no word for `weapons`. I might add that I am now reading a book by a German woman called `Fragments of Isabella`. It was published in the USA. No German would dare to bring it out. I imagine. It is greater than the film Holocaust. Respectfully, - Henry Miller"
