(MONTGOMERY, L.M.). My dear Mr. M.: Letters to G.B. MacMillan from L.M. Montgomery. Edited by Francis W.P. Bolger and Elizabeth R. Epperly. Toronto [et al] : McGraw-Hill Ryerson Ltd., (1980). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-xii,1-212,+ 8 8vo, beige paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. "Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the ever-popular 'Anne of Green Gables' was a keen letter-writer. Her letters to George Boyd MacMillan over their thirty-nine year friendship show the full range of her interests, from domestic concerns, her cats and gardening, to her professional literary career as best-selling author. She shares with MacMillan the joys and burdens of her life. She is proud of her two sons and is excited by new inventions such as motor cars and talkies. At the same time, she is saddened by the encroachment of 'progress' on her idyllic, rural Prince Edward Island. She agonizes over the campaigns of the two World Wars and never recovers completely from the death of her closest friend. During her friendship with MacMillan, L.M. Montgomery changes from a confident and cheerful young woman to a disillusioned but courageous old woman. After her retirement to 'Journey's End' in Toronto, distraught by family problems and depressed by the Second World War, her health and spirits fail. These letters will delight all readers of Lucy Maud Montgomery's books. They reveal the character of one of ourbest-known authors; charming, witty, sometimes gloomy and morbid, she was above all stimulating." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. 25.00
