2 Neil Simon Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers: The Illustrated Screenplay of the Film
NY Newmarket Press 1993 1557041717 / 9781557041715 1st Edition Trade Paperback Very Good No Jacket Issued Book Multi-signed
Signed by Mercedes Ruehl, Richard Dreyfuss, Irene Worth, and Neil Simon, each on a tipped in book plate. Approx. 8.5x11 inches, in very nice condition. Neil Simon's inimitable play about the trials and tribulations that test family ties - winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. What happens to children in the absence of love? That is the question that lies at the heart of this funny and heartrending play. It is New York, 1942. After the death of their mother, two young brothers are sent to stay with their formidable grandmother for the longest ten months of their lives. Grandmother Kurnitz is a one-woman German front- a refugee and a widow who has steeled her heart against the world. Her coldness and intolerance have crippled her own children: the boys' father has no self-esteem . . . their Aunt Gert has an embarrassing speech impediment . . . their Uncle Louie is a small-time gangster . . . and their Aunt Bella has the mentality of a child. But it is Bella's hunger for affection and her refusal to be denied love that saves the boys- and that leads to an unforgettable, wrenching confrontation with her mother. Filled with laughter, tears, and insight, Lost in Yonkers is yet another heartwarming testament to Neil Simon's talent.
