Letters to Cast from Clement Greenberg consists of three postcards and two letters between 1981 and 1987. The letters, though brief, reveal Greenberg's characteristic voice and report on the critic's later life as an art celebrity, in which he ruminates on being constantly on the go from lectures to receiving awards. Greenberg also mentions Jules Olitski, Edward Fry, Peter Fuller, and Sydney Freedberg.
