The Homecoming. Harold Pinter.

The Homecoming

London: Methuen & Co, 1965. First Edition. Hardcover. 1st edition of The Nobel Laureate’s Tony Award Winning play, a sizeable rotation in post–modern theater, accentuating the spoken word as weapon, and the unspoken word as eloquence. The Homecoming is a striking child of the 1960s, though drama is a less recognized fragment of the cultural revolution than the clothes, music, dope, politics, haircuts, or even the burnt draft cards and bras, for which the era is more generally remembered (I’m not saying sex, because there’s always been sex). Presentation copy, inscribed using his stage name (David Baron), to Vivien Merchant (his wife), the lead actress, and the only woman in the play. And she is pictured on the jacket in a scene from the play. Near fine in a near fine dustjacket. An unsurpassable association copy, as no play meant more to Pinter, and no presentation copy of it, meant as much. Near fine / near fine. Item #81

Price: $45,000.00
