First American Edition. INSCRIBED by the author to noted critic Mel Gussow, " For Mel / with my warmest regards-and my thanks for the most [illegible] and stimulating breakfast that any can offer / Jim Crace." Gussow was a theatre critic and cultural writer for The New York Times from 1969 until his death in 2005. He authored 8 books, served as editor for many others, and his reviews and interviews (with the likes of Arthur Miller, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, and Tom Stoppard) became staples of students and fans of theatre for decades. His first published review was Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? " in 1962, leading to a lifelong relationship with the playwright that resulted in a biography of Albee by Gussow, published in 1999. Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket.
