ALLEN DRURY. TLS: "Allen", 1p, 7¼x5¾. Tiburon, California, 1983 August 27. On his personal stationery to author Erika Holzer. Begins: "Dear Erika". In full: "Congratulations on the good reception for DOUBLE CROSSING, which I hope does very well for you. It will, I also hope, reach many people who need to be informed. I only regret that I won't be able to attend the party in October-I'll be over in Phoenix plugging my own DECISION-but I do appreciate the thought. Don't worry about Kirkus, which is uniformly nasty to me too, and to many others. It's apparently composed of a bunch of snot-nosed juvenile incompetents who get their kicks out of derogating their betters-and you may quote me. They are regarded with almost universal contempt in the book business. Best regards and good luck." ALLEN DRURY (1918-1998), a veteran journalist who covered the U.S. Senate for "The New York Times", published 18 novels, including Advise and Consent, which won the 1960 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and Decision (1983), a novel set in the Supreme Court, and five nonfiction books. Lawyer turned author ERIKA HOLZER wrote two novels, Double Crossing (1983), a human rights espionage drama, and Eye for an Eye (1994), which was filmed in 1996. She sought endorsements for her 1983 novel from prominent writers of the day. "Kirkus Reviews", founded in 1933, publishes pre-publication reviews of more than 5,000 titles annually.
