New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux [FSG], 2004. First Edition. INSCRIBED by the author to Mel Gussow on the title page: "Mel / Thanks for such a kind, gentle and [illegible] conversation / All best / ASG." Greer has also SIGNED the title page, and at page 267, as "MAX." Gussow was a theatre critic and cultural writer for The New York Times from 1969 until his death in 2005. He authored 8 books, served as editor for many others, and his reviews and interviews (with the likes of Arthur Miller, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, and Tom Stoppard) became staples of students and fans of theatre for decades. His first published review was Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" in 1962, leading to a lifelong relationship with the playwright that resulted in a biography of Albee by Gussow, published in 1999. Gussow published a review of Greer's book for The New York Times in 2004.
Fine and unread in an about Fine dust jacket. A light wrinkle to the jacket rear spine fold. An attractive copy, and a nice association.
