About this Item

Publisher's green cloth with maroon lettering. Dust wrapper lightly worn with tape repair reverse back cover and with some glue showing through. Inscribed by the author: "To Bob Young, "thump" like your esteemed ancestor. Irving McKee. Nov. 14, 1951." 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.
