JOHN HERSEY
The Pulitzer Prize winning author writes to a friend about his health less than a year before his death
Typed Letter signed: "John", 1 page, 5x7. Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, 1992 July 6. On his personal letterhead written to "Dear David:" In full: "This is an extremely late word of thanks for those beautiful luxe meals you brought me at the Key West hospital. They gave me as much nourishment in thinking about your kindness as they did in protein and carbohydrate. The months have rolled away, and after a stint in a marvelous rehab hospital in Boston, I've been discharged and am at home, regaining strengths and pounds. You know all about rehabilitation-how slow the process seems, yet how miraculous the body's recovery of its powers can be. I feel guilty that one of your splendid platters got lost in those days of your generosity. I hope you know that what you did meant a lot to me. Barbara and I look forward to seeing you again when we get back to Key West. In the meantime, please accept my laggard but heartfelt thanks. Sincerely yours," A former war correspondent in the Pacific and Europe for Time magazine (1939-1945), John Hersey(1914-1993) brought vivid accounts of war to readers in such books as Men on Bataan (1942), Hiroshima (1946), a graphic report on the bombing of the Japanese city, and The Wall (1950). His 1944 book, A Bell for Adano, the story of the Allied occupation of Italy, won the 1945 Pulitzer Prizefor Fiction. Normal mailing fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
