Young was the grandson of William Winter, America's leading theatre critic (1870's through the 19 teens). Winter appears twice in the text, with McKee pointing out on page 180 that Winter had panned a theatrical performance of Wallace's play "Commodus" with a "quick thump to the author's head." Young himself was the author of biographies of Sessue Hayakawa and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. Illustrated. Attractively printed by The Gillick Press, Berkeley, CA. 301 pages, including index.
