A Taste of Honey
NY, Grove (Evergreen), (1959). The first American edition of this play, written by an 18-year-old English woman and taking on social issues she thought were being ignored in the arts. The 1961 film adaptation, for which Delaney wrote the screenplay, won four BAFTA awards, including for best screenplay. An Evergreen original, i.e., softcover, from the library of Pauline Kael and with Kael's ownership signature on the inside front cover. Before devoting her writing career to film criticism, Kael had written poetry and plays, and her best friends in San Francisco were other poets and artists. Spine slanted; very good in wrappers.
