2 JOHN UPDIKE - TRACY KIDDER - LORRIE MOORE JOHN UPDIKE'S PERSONAL COPIES WITH OWNERSHIP SIGNATURE ON TWO [2] FINE UNCORRECTED PROOF COPIES: LIKE LIFE AND HOUSE
New York NY Houghton Mifflin 1984 Soft Cover Very Fine Uncorrected Proof 
This auction is for two uncorrected proofs in original wrappers, Like Life, by Lorrie Moore, and House, by Tracy Kidder. Both are John Updike's copies, with his ownership signature to the front covers. Laid into the proof by Kidder, who like Updike is a Pulitzer winner, is a publicity photo (of Kidder) and a typed letter to Updike signed by an editor at Houghton Mifflin (subtly) requesting a blurb for Kidder's book. Both proofs are in fine condition. The Lorrie Moore proof is an especially interesting association, in that Updike later included a story from this collection in his anthology Best American Short Stories of the Century.

3 JOHN UPDIKE & DICK CAVETT ORIGINAL STUDIO MASTER TAPE - UNCUT - DECEMBER 1978 JOHN UPDIKE INTERVIEWED BY DICK CAVETT
1978 Very Good 
On offer is the unedited original studio tape of The Dick Cavett Show Dec. 1978. Superb piece of television and literary history. Cavett, intelligent and erudite, shines in this one-on-one with Updike who is also at his best. The chemistry between the two is everything in this 'intimate' conversation and Updike's answers to Cavett's questions are frequently referenced by students and chroniclers of the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner. In the original taping there was a technical glitch undiscovered by the cameraman for several minutes at the very start of the interview but corrected after a few minutes. This is a complete copy, unedited and as such has the warts and all of a live taping.
