About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Three Screenplays [Signed].

Description:

A Fine, likely Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket (spine very lightly sunned), SIGNED BY E. L. DOCTOROW on the title page: a collection of three screenplays adapted for the Screen by the highly-acclaimed E. L. Doctorow from his third, fourth, and fifth novels: "The Book of Daniel", "Ragtime", and "Loon Lake", published here for the first time. "Ragtime" (the novel) was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel and won the 1975 National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction and the 1976 American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters Award. The 1981 film of the same name was nominated for multiple Oscars, featured the final motion picture appearances of James Cagney and of Pat O'Brien, as well as early appearances of Samuel L. Jackson, Jeff Daniels, Fran Drescher, Ethan Phillips, and John Ratzenberger, and an appearance from Jack Nicholson. "The Book of Daniel", a novel loosely based on Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, provided the basis for the 1983 film of the same name starring Ed Asner, Mandy Patinkin, Lindsay Crouse, Timothy Hutton, Ellen Barkin, and Amanda Plummer. As "Three Screenplays" was published by a University Press, we doubt that many copies were issued, and the current market appears to confirm that assumption. Fine copies are certainly scarce, and Signed copies are, in our experience, as scarce as hen's teeth -- we have never seen another signed copy. A Fine, likely Superior, copy, SIGNED BY E. L. DOCTOROW. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE INDEED. Bookseller Inventory #
