QuotationKurt W. [Wolff] has sent me the Essai autobiographique [written as the introduction to A Sketch for an Autobiography and published separately in 1958] and I am reading it with great pleasure. In my turn I am sending you a book of mine, also autobiographical in character, called The Sign of Jonas. It may take a little time to get there. New Directions may also send you a small volume of my poems, of which I am by no means proud.
