We Bombed in New Haven
NY, Knopf, 1968. The second book, a play, by the author of Catch-22. Inscribed by Heller to Dick Seader, the General Manager of the play's Broadway debut, in the month of publication and two months prior to opening night: "To Dick Seader, with thanks and very high hopes -- for all of us. Joe Heller 8/15/68." After an initial production by the Repertory Company of the Yale Drama School, the play moved to the Ambassador Theater on Broadway, to open on October 16: it ran for 85 performances. Mild offsetting on the inscription page; greater offsetting on verso. Near fine in a very good, spine and edge-tanned dust jacket with a bit of dampstaining on the verso, at the lower spine. A nice association, and an early inscription. [#033175] $575
