Suspended Drawing Room, 1965 S. N. Behrman

Regular price $5.00

The Suspended Drawing Room, 1965 collects Essays/Portraits by S. N. Behrman, American Dramatist and Writing Stylist, on Bernard Shaw, Pascal, Sherwood, Kazan, and others. These are delightful essays, many of which appeared in The New Yorker, written in a distinctive and most enjoyable style.

Behrman (1893-1973) is recognized as the best American writer of sophisticated comedy drama during those popular theater years between the two World Wars, plays such as Biography, The Second Man  and No Time for Comedy.

Behrman's essays are less well known--and here lies your opportunity.

This book is in good condition without markings or tears but with a well kept dust jacket, despite some worn edges.  Its pages are clearly browned but show no foxing. It measures 5 3/4 inches by  8 1/2 inches by 1 inch and has 253 pages.
