The best source for Willa’s negative attitudes towards “cheap” editions is Sharon O’Brien’s recent article in *Studies in the Novel.* I’ve attached a PDF. You should be able to find what you’re looking for in there.

I’m trying to find the Cather quote that expressed her disdain for paperback editions of her novels—the one where she talks about them as cheap summer reads. I can’t remember where that quote is.
