A working draft of Hoban's magnum opus, with leaves dated between 22nd September 1979 and 5th November 1979. From the archive Marilyn Edwards (publicist at Cape). Two binders (mostly carbon typescript, with a few photocopied leaves - according to an included letter from Edwards). Included are four letters. 1. A TLS on Hoban's signature yellow paper from Hoban, signed Russ, regarding her seeming departure from Cape to focus on her own writing. 2. A TLS from Edwards to Hoban, complimenting him on the book. 3. An ALS from Hoban thanking her and 4. A TLS from Edwards describing the MSS. 119pp in binder one, 126pp in binder two. Hoban drafted the novel numerous times, attempting at one point to write it in 'normal' speech, and earlier scrapping a ~500 page draft. This represents one of the later states of the manuscript. Yale hold the majority of the drafts for the books (including, seemingly, one for this particular iteration), so a rare opportunity to acquire a Riddley Walker mss. [8374, Hyraxia Books].
