About This Item

New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1938). First Edition. Hardcover. Just a touch of sunning to the spine; slight foxing to the fore-edge of the bulked text which is slightly cocked; owner name on verso of front endpaper. Near Fine in a just about Fine dustwrapper. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a touchstone of American theater. After reading this play, Albert Einstein wrote a letter to Wilder comparing OUR TOWN to Homer's ODYSSEY and Shakespeare's HAMLET, stating: "That an American of the present day can create with such delicacy and detachment touches the soul like a miracle."
