Alex Haley Signed Letter with Biographical Content

Alex Haley Signed Letter with Biographical Content

Haley tells Murray in this Aug. 14, 1977 letter that "when I'd just finished writing Roots...I began reading your work [and] the more I did, the more I perceived -- this guy is damned good." Letter typed on Haley stationery is especially noteworthy for Haley relating "Sports never was really much of my thing. Too young, and small, when I might have competed in school." He then tells of his education and "affair with typewriters." Signed, "Cordially, Alex," the name in black marker. 5.5 x 8.5" and NRMT w/2 light folds.
