Allen, Woody - The Complete Prose of Woody Allen - ( Item 127686 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2008. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Bound in cloth. Set in Goudy with Paltime display. Frontispiece and 12 pages of black & white plates. 9" x 6", 256 pages. It was in writing for magazines such as The New Yorker that Woody Allen found his comic voice. This first ever illustrated edition of his essays, short stories and playlets finds the master of parody and juxtaposition speculating on such topics as the real message of the Dead Sea Scrolls ('The lion and the calf shall lie down together but the calf won't get much sleep'), what Vincent Van Gogh would have written to his brother Theo if he and his fellow impressionists had been dentists instead of artists ('I took some dental X-rays this week that I thought were good. Degas saw them and was critical. He said the composition was bad'); and the place of the fake ink blot at key moments in history.
