A Very Good typed letter signed from Christina Stead to her American Literary Agency and addressed to Ruth Soika and Joan Daves dated 5 July, 1976 and reading as follows: "Dear Ruth: Thanks and to Joan forthe [sic] Partisan Review [underlined] enclosure. // Yes, I shall contribute to that discussion, when I have time - / very soon. Would you kindly tell them so? I'll be back from Newcastle / University at the end of July and shall then work on it. The questionnaire / is helpful. // Kind regards, // Sincerely, // [Stead's signature]". A committed Marxist and one of Australia's most prominent writers whose most famous novels, "The Man Who Loved Children" is included in Time Magazine's "100 Best Novels from 19232005". A prominent Literary Agent, Joan Daves was, as the New York Times stated in her obituary, ".regarded as one of the world's foremost agents for serious and intellectual fiction and nonfiction. Her Nobel Prize-winning clients included Heinrich Boll (1972), Elias Canetti (1981), Herman Hesse (1946), the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1964), Nelly Sachs (1966) and Gabriela Mistral (1945). All but Dr. King, who won the Nobel Peace Prize and took Ms. Daves with him to Stockholm when he received the award, were laureates in literature. Ms. Daves (pronounced DAY-vis) also represented such renowned authors as Frank O'Connor, Isaac Babel, Vaclav Havel and Rachel Carson, the trailblazing environmentalist who wrote ''Silent Spring'' and ''The Sea Around Us.''" Signed letters from Christina Stead are uncommon to the market. Bookseller Inventory #
