The Homecoming

London: Methuen & Co., (1965).

Price: $45,000.00

Hardcover. First edition. Fine in fine, very lightly rubbed dustwrapper. In custom chemise and quarter morocco gilt and cloth slipcase. Inscribed by Pinter to Vivien Merchant, the lead (and only) actress in the play, who was also his wife: "June 1965 To Vivien. Thank you! David." Pinter was an actor as well, and here uses his stage name, which was David Baron. *The Homecoming* won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1967, and Merchant was nominated for Best Actress. As good an association as is possible in what is probably the Nobel Prize-winning playwright's best-known and commercially most successful drama.

His plays are noted for their use of understatement, small talk, and reticence--even silence--to convey the substance of a character's thought. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature
He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005.more
