Master Harold and the Boys.

Item Number: 1876

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1982.

First edition of the playwright’s most well known work. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Warmly inscribed by Athol Fugard on the half title page with a six line inscription.

"One of Fugard's most universal works of theatre. It operates on two levels: as the story of a loving but lacerating relationship between a black man and a white boy; and . . . as a powerful political statement about apartheid"( Mel Gussow, New Yorker).
