Every Night Josephine, Signed + Original Drawing Laid In
[Signed Presentation, Original Drawing Laid In] Susann, Jacqueline. Every Night, Josephine. First Edition. 1963. Book is in very good condition; dust jacket is in good plus condition—jacket shows a repaired tear and fraying. This copy is warmly inscribed, “To ‘Charlie Brown’s’ mommy & daddy—Love, ‘Josephine’ & her ‘mommy’ & ‘daddy,’ Jacqueline Susan, 5/5/64.” Laid in is a drawing of Josephine and Charlie Brown on a half sheet of typewriter paper in blue ink, signed “Jacqueline Susann.”
This book preceded Susan’s bestselling Valley of the Dolls by several years. It is the lighthearted memoir of the glamorous life she shared with her poodle Josephine in a fashionable high-rise apartment overlooking Central Park.
“For the imaginative poodle who is positive he is a people, there is much to be said about the logic of his reasoning.”
