Abstract:

Comprises correspondence (primarily incoming) and several works by King from 1939-92. Correspondence content varies from discussions about his works, reviews, publishing, PEN, and politics, to personal information. The bulk of correspondence is from Edith Borne, Ronald Bottrall, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Clifford Kitchin, Robert Liddell, Harold Nicolson, Desmond Stewart, and Godfrey Winn. Also in the correspondence series are letters from King to Alexander Walton (1956-63), discussing King's experiences and impressions of Greece and Japan during his employment with the British Council. Letters from King to his mother date from 1931 to 1992, but the bulk are from 1957-63, and cover a variety of topics.

The majority of the novels King wrote between 1949 and 1978 are represented in the collection in typescript or holographic form, most of which have been heavily edited. Some of his novels in this collection are The Custom House (1961), The Last of the Pleasure Gardens (1965), The Waves behind the Boat (1967), A Domestic Animal (1970), and The Needle (1975).
