(n.p.), (n.p.), [2002]. A 25-page script for Moody's radio play, about an art student obsessed with the rotating cubical sculpture in New York City's Astor Place entitled Alamo but commonly known as "the cube." The play first appeared in Paris Review 162, but it was performed as part of WNYC's public radio show, "The Next Big Thing." This script for the performance belonged to Tony Award-winning actor and "Wilson" of television's House, Robert Sean Leonard, who here played the main character, Irv Paley. Leonard's holograph markings and comments appear in the text, i.e., a working copy of the script. Together with a program for the performance listing the cast members and other principals, and a two-page interview with the sculptor of "Alamo," Tony Rosenthal who, among other things, explains where the sculpture got its name. Among the other cast members is Peter Dinklage, currently of Game of Thrones fame. George Plimpton is credited with "Stage Directions" an Moody as Playwright. The place of the performance is not identified, but it would appear that this performance was the one that was recorded for radio play on WNYC in 2002: apparently it was performed again on WNYC in 2004, with a different cast; the later cast included Miranda July and Ethan Hawke. The script is a computer printout on three hole-punched sheets, one sheet of which is recycled from another script, in a plastic binder. Near fine. A unique copy of a rare printed version of an uncommon work by Moody. [#032804] $750

Santa Monica, Danger Books, (1999). Virtually a novella in the form of a book dealer's catalog. Moody has created a hilarious and touching self-contained world where the values accorded to the items for sale (dollars) and the values inherent in them (significance, artistry, passion) are in running comic contrast. Moody has his tongue in his cheek but also his heart on his sleeve; many of the entries embody a sensitivity and tenderness surprising in such a send-up. An effective, even haunting riff on rare book catalogs. The trade edition consisted of 1000 copies in wrappers: 300 numbered and signed and 700 unsigned. This is the uncorrected proof copy. Apparently identical to the trade edition but with "Uncorrected Proof" printed on the front cover. Given the sophistication of the production and producers, probably a cleverly marketed print overrun rather than a true proof. Fine in wrappers and signed by Moody. [#911773] $40
