Item Number: 83468
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1928.
First edition of O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket.
Winner of the 1928 Pulitzer Prize, Strange Interlude, "a play in nine acts, almost twice the length of an ordinary stage piece, is a work of extraordinary power which, with the copious use of asides and soliloquies, seeks to expose the motives of human character. In this play and in others that followed, O'Neill seemed to be clarifying his ideas on the soul of man and the destiny of the human race" (Hartnoll, 612).
