(price-clipped) [tiny bump to top front corner, no other significant wear; jacket shows slight wear at extremities, has a couple of small internal tape repairs at spine ends]. The story of the last days of the great French actor Gérard Philipe (so memorable in Rene Clair's 'La Beauté du diable' and other films), told by his widow after his death from liver cancer at the age of 36. "This is not so much the story of a death as it is the story of a great love. It is told with pride and courage, with great sincerity and integrity."
