Remembering Mr. Maugham: A Conversation with Ruth Gordon, Clare Booth Luce, George Cukor, Garson Kanin, Aerol Arnold

Los Angeles: University of Southern California Friends of the Libraries, 1966.

Price: $250.00

Softcover. First edition. Tall octavo. 37pp. Stapled printed wrappers. Modest wear to the oversized "yapped" wrappers, else very near fine. Although not signed, this was Ruth Gordon and her husband Garson Kanin's copy. In the text, where Gordon mentions that upon her death she hopes they won't have a "Remembering Ruth Gordon" event, Kanin's second wife, the actress Marian Seldes, has inserted a tiny slip with the date of her close friend Gordon's death in 1982. One needn't look too far to read some poignancy in to that act.
