I agree with you that "a piece of a novel" is nearly always unsatisfactory; but this particular book is scarcely a novel at all. I always see it as a narrative which moves along in a straight line on two white mules6 that do not hurry themselves much.
Your letter was sent to the Grosvenor Hotel7, but that is no longer my address. I am in New York8 so little now that the quickest way to reach me is to address a letter in care of Alfred Knopf. They are very conscientious there about forwarding letters.Very cordially yours, Willa Cather
