Includes illustrations by Al Hirschfeld. A very near fine copy in an about very good dust jacket that has some soiling, a number of tears and small chips along with a longer tear to the top of the front flap. Signed and warmly inscribed by Kanin to author and drama critic Claudia Cassidy in 1960 just prior to the debut of the play version which the inscription references. A terrific association copy.
