LEVIN, Ira
The Boys from Brazil
New York: Random House, 1976. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First edition. Fine in price-clipped else near fine dustwrapper. An intelligent and prescient techno-thriller in which Nazis stage a comeback with clones of Hitler and a Nazi hunter is the world's only salvation. Basis for the film featuring Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier, and James Mason. Inscribed by Levin to Tony Award-winning actress Marian Seldes: "6/17/82. Dear Marian; Some day they'll clone you, and raise a whole troupe of warm wonderful actresses who will bring joy both to audiences and the people lucky enough to work with them. The only problem will be getting them to take a vacation once in a while. Love, love, love, Ira". Seldes was the leading lady in Levin's Tony Award-winning play *Deathtrap.* The Tony Award-winning play *Deathtrap* ran for 1,793 performances, with Seldes appearing in every performance, a feat that earned her a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records as "most durable actress" (presumably explaining the "vacation" part of the inscription She was also nominated for Best Featured Actress in the play, losing to Ann Wedgeworth in Neil Simon's play *Chapter Two*. Marian Seldes did win a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in 1967 for her appearance in Edward Albee's *A Delicate Balance*, as well as receiving four more nominations in acting categories. In 2010 she won a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. A nice copy with a good association.
