And then You Wish

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1937. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #2263128

First edition. Two small tears along bottom edge of jacket rear, jacket edges very lightly rubbed. Page ridges lightly foxed.

344 pp. A novel by the well-known playwright, whose play I am a Camera became Bob Fosse's famous musical film Cabaret. "There's a possible theatre enthusiast reading public for this novel by the playwright who gave us Young Woodley, but it is primarily a woman's story about a woman, the widowed Mrs. Bowen who finds a chance to indulge her secret passion for the theatre when she meets a struggling, unrecognized playwright. She plays every card and eventually gets production for him, only to find that the reality falls short of her imaginings. Unsentimental, revealing yet sympathetic presentation."

Price: $125.00
