HIGGINS, Colin
Harold and Maude
J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia and New York, 1971. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper. This copy with a full-page Inscription from Higgins to the actor Jack Lemmon: "Dear Jack, The nicest thing about writing a novel is giving it to people you admire. During Idiot's Delight as the second asst. stage manager (not to mention the 2nd Italian officer) I'd watch you night after night and be thoroughly captivated. So it's a real thrill for me to send you this book. I hope you like it. Peace & love, Colin 1971." The story of a young man and a much older woman. The basis for Hal Ashby's classic cult film, perfectly cast with Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. A lovely copy with a notable association. As the inscription notes, Higgins and Lemmon had worked together the previous year on Garson Kanin's adaptation of Robert Sherwood's play *Idiot's Delight*. The many devotees of the film version of *Harold and Maude* seem to have expressed their affection for the book by reading most copies to death. Additionally, it is very uncommon signed, particularly with a significant association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
