November 16, 1983

Dear Don,

Latest on the book is it will be ready at the bindery by
November 28–then will be shipped to Harper & Row for distribution.
The damn cover will be blue! I do hope they know what they’re doing!
Got a letter today from the Missouri English department which contains
the happy news that they are impressed–very impressed, they say–with
my resume and want to consider me for interviewing. That’s the good
news news–this even before seeing my dossier. The bad news is that
the job may not get funded.

I may have more news about the job hunt when we arrive
at your house next week. We look forward mightily to that boiled
dinner! (So does Lilly, whom I talked to last night.) See you then!



A note from McNair about this letter: Lily is Lily Heinburg. She and her husband Wolf, will join Diane and me as guests for dinner with Don and Jane.
