Regular price $2.50

Journals of Thornton Wilder 1939-1961, selected and edited by Donald Gallop also contains two scenes from "The Emporium," an uncompleted play, and a Foreword by Isabel Wilder.

This 18 page foreword by Isabel Wilder, Thornton's sister, shows a distinctive view of the man who wrote the American classics,"Our Town," "The Bridge of San Luis Rey" and "The Skin of Our Teeth."

The Journals are a remarkable record of Wilder's thoughts about his contemporaries, his plays and all of his writings both finished and unfinished. As self-evaluation, his journals become a revealing and  permanent part of American literature.

The book is in very good condition, a little foxing and some slight shelf wear on the dust jacket. It is hardcover with 354 pages and measures 6 1/4 inches by  9 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches.
