"MAYBE KINSEY AND NAMELESS WILL MEET ONE DAY BETWEEN THE PAGES": LOVELY FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST KINSEY MILLHONE MYSTERY, "A" IS FOR ALIBI, ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY SUE GRAFTON TO A FELLOW MYSTERY WRITER
GRAFTON, Sue. "A" is for Alibi. New York: Holt, Reinhart and Winston, (1982). Octavo, original dark gray paper boards, original dust jacket.
First edition of the original Kinsey Millhone mystery, inscribed on the title page to mystery writer Bill Pronzini: "For Bill—Maybe Kinsey and Nameless will meet one day between the pages—as we have met in the real world. Best of luck with your next. Love, Sue. 5-29-83."
The first book in Sue Grafton's enormously popular alphabet series. Recipient Bill Pronzini is most well-known for his award-winning "Nameless Detective" series. Grafton's inscription proved prophetic; the next year Pronzini has Nameless see Kinsey across the room at a convention in Chicago in his novel Double.
A fine copy.
