Beyond the story of Joyce Maynard's relationship with J. D. Salinger and his influence on her writing, this is the story of the daughter of brilliant and complicated parents - an adoring alcoholic artist for a father and a dazzling, funny, and wildly frustrated mother, driven to see her daughters achieve what had never been possible for herself. Joyce Maynard grew up with pen in hand, writing and publishing stories before she reached her teens. In this book, Maynard made the decision to break her 25-year silence about what had taken place with Salinger. Photo end papers. Bottom right corner is slightly worn, jacket has light shelf wear. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
