[nice unread copy, very light soiling to bottom edge, inside clean]. Trade PB Script for the acclaimed British TV series, about a hospitalized writer who "feverishly drifts between present and past, jumbling the facts of his life with the cheap fiction of his detective novels. He and the other characters periodically break into song, bizarrely miming the words from old 1940s recordings featuring everybody from Bing Crosby to Dick Haymes." [Note that this is the book club edition, not the trade paperback edition, although for all intents and purposes they are identical.]
