Lot 952: TLS in French, signed "Francois," one onionskin page, 8.25 x 11.75, personal letterhead, August 8, 1980. Letter to the writer Stanley Hochman in New York, in part (translated): "I send you information for the small French book…The American Night and my 'Journal of Shooting of Fahrenheit 451'…The first text was published by Grove Press in America but the second could possibly be a little interesting and economic work…Gallimard finally decided to take an interest in a little cinema and they have created a collection directed by Jean Narboni of Cahiers du Cinema. They seem interested in a translation of your Faulkner and Film; I hope they contact you shortly." Truffant makes a few handwritten emendations to the text. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, a date stamp to upper right, and some creasing to upper portion.
