No date. Unbound. Fine. 8pp single-side typescript. Inscribed by the author to the first sheet. Natives Don't Cry was first published in 1957, so the story dates from before then. This manuscript, however, is not 65 years old, it's more recently. Which leaves a bit of a conundrum as to what it actually is. My instinct is that it was something prepared by a fan or collector etc. which was then later inscribed and maybe gifted. I'm just guessing though really. A nice thing nonetheless.
