[nice square clean copy, appears unread, no discernible wear to book; jacket just a tiny bit crinkled at spine ends, very slight wear to bottom corners of spine panel]. Collects the following plays: "Welcome Stranger" (1920) by Aaron Hoffman; "Counsellor-at-Law" (1931) by Elmer Rice; "Awake and Sing!" (1935) by Clifford Odets; "Morning Star" (1940) by Sylvia Regan; "Home of the Brave" (1945) by Arthur Laurents; "The Cold Wind and the Warm" (1958) by S.N. Behrman; and "The Tenth Man" (1959) by Paddy Chayefsky. Introduction by Ellen Schiff. "Taken together, all seven plays tell the story of the Jew in America struggling to assimilate yet pondering what being Jewish means and working out this conflict in masterful theatre pieces of comedy and drama." (I've noted this as a possible book club edition due to the absence of a printed price on the jacket; on the other hand, it bears a bar-coded ISBN, which is not typical of book club issues. So take your pick -- but either way, it's a lovely copy of the book, virtually as new.)
