[nice as-new copy, but for slight fading along spine; no discernible wear, appears unread]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) "Here, in his own words, is Hammett the family man, distant but devoted, late with the check but never too late; Hammett the student of political affairs, scanning the headlines from a Marxist perspective; Hammett the lover of Lillian Hellman, delighting in her style, her humor, and her accomplishments, yet always maintaining his life apart from hers." The letters were gathered mostly from private collections, and most were previously unpublished.
