[moderate edgewear, a couple of tiny cracks in spine (integrity of binding not compromised); original publisher's "issue highlights" label affixed to front cover]. (B&W/color photographs, ads, etc.) The most notable pieces in this issue are "Mama's Old Stucco House," a previously unpublished story by Tennessee Williams, and "A Wen," a play in two scenes by Saul Bellow. The cover photo gallery (featuring the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jerry Lewis, Barry Goldwater, Herman Munster, Lyndon Johnson, and other notables of the day) promotes the 4th annual installment of the magazine's long-running "Dubious Achievement Awards" feature, which was snarkiness at its finest before "snarky" was even a word. Other articles/features: a profile of New York Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle, by Irwin Shaw; "Death as a Game," a treatise on how to be a mystery writer, by Michael Innes; a feature on movie producer Joseph E. Levine's crash diet; "Boss Ladies," an article profiling four women in executive positions, with a full-page color photo of each (the four are: Mildred Custin, president of Bonwit Teller; Phyllis Jackson, a literary agent; Helen Van Slyke, president of House of Fragrance; and Eleanor Kilgallen, a vice-president of Music Corporation of America); an article, "The American Painter as a Blue Chip," illustrated with color photos of Andy Warhol (shopping for soup cans!), Jasper Johns, Larry Rivers, and others.
