Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Shirlee Weingarten on the front free endpaper: "To Shirlee Weingarten / with affection and gratitude / for all she has done since the / first typing job - all the kindness / in the many small things that only / the sensitive do, as the sensitive appreciate. / I have a guilty feeling I have not / been sufficiently appreciative at times, or have even / been downright rude & taking it for granted / you should light cigarettes for playwrights! I hope / I didn't. If I did, it wasn't meant." O'Neill had Parkinsons from 1943, and copies thus inscribed (at such painstaking, if barely legible, length) are consequently rare. The recipient seems from the inscription to have been O'Neill's amanuensis, making this a touching and close association.
