This collection includes drafts and correspondence concerning Saltzman's novels Ever Tomorrow and Stuart's Hill and a manuscript of her unpublished novel, Carpthorne. Also included are manuscripts of poetry, short stories, and essays. One critic has said that the chapters of her novels could stand alone as short stories, and indeed some of the manuscripts, which appear in journals as short stories as well as chapters in her books, are treated as short stories here, separate from the manuscripts for the novels. There are some tear sheets for published materials for which we have no manuscript. Each folder contains a manuscript unless otherwise noted. Where we have the manuscript and the published version, the name of the piece is followed by the citation. In those cases in which we have the published version only, this is noted by a short statement following the citation. Where there is correspondence relating to a piece of writing, it is included in the folder with the manuscript or tear sheet.
