(NY), Avon, (1976). The sixth printing of the paperback reprint, from the library of Pauline Kael and with her comments on the text at numerous points throughout the book. On the inside front cover she wrote "In its own terms well written, except for Hesther-Dysart scenes, through parents' stuff awfully mechanical -- they're all making points." Elsewhere, she wrote: "awful scene -- so arch & British...Gawd -- like wartime British movies..." then later "another terrible scene -- all explanation of what's coming." These comments, and others, refer to the scene she mentioned earlier with Hesther and Dysart. At many other locations in the text she has underlined, made a marginal mark or comment or highlighted some passage with her annotations. A glimpse of the close, critical reading with which she engaged this text. Spine slanted; pages age-toned; still a near fine paperback. [#034580] SOLD
