"MIRROR IN MY HOUSE"
Here, in two handsome boxed volumes, is the complete, the magnificent
autobiography, of the greatest living dramatist in our language .. , who now
has written the exciting, jaunty, fearless chronicle of a deeply honest man--
when he was young and as he grew old.
Here are all six of his autobiographical volumes, I KNOCK AT THE DOOR,
PICTURES IN THE HALLWAY, DRUMS UNDER THE WINDOW, INISH-
FALLEN-FARE THEE WELL, ROSE AND CROWN, SUNSET AND EVENING
STAR. The prose is incomparable . . . with all the lilt and grandeur, the
singing-ness, of Juno and the Paycock and The Plough and the Stars.
Here is the tragic, real Ireland, the wit and Irish Lingo, the touching, won-
drous experience of coming into an adult world, the fantasy and poetry, the
heartbreaking concern for the under-dog, the brilliant philosophy, which
marks all of O'Casey's writing and which makes this one of the major
literary achievements of our time and perhaps of all time. Certainly this
fine set will be recognized by generations to come as one of the great auto-

This is the tender, compelling story of a young

her age. Genet, of The New Yorker, says: "She
is a born French novelist of style and quality . 0
the critical reception has been extraordinary."

19. A GIFT RECOMMENDATION
FROM BOB MARSHALL'S
A major new work, SEIZE THE DAY . . . his first fiction since the National Book
Award winner, ADVENTURES OF AUGIE MARCH.
In SEIZE THE DAY Saul Bellow demonstrates again the craftmanship which marks
him as, perhaps, the young American writer who presages a major development in
American letters. With a debt to the "naturalism" of Farrell and Dreiser, and as
well as Kafka, Proust, and Dostoevsky, Bellow's maturing style weaves these major
threads of our tradition together, adds an alchemy of his own concern for the
species man, in the process assuming the stature of a young Dickens or Turgenev.
(This, at least, is my firm, personal opinion. . .B.M.)
SEIZE THE DAY again gives us Bellow's concern with the human situation, the
question of affirming one's humanity . . .orousing an identification with that
search of far more than pity, of rather an identification of what everyone who
would come to terms with himself must undergo.
THE LION AND
TH E FOX
THE FIRST POLITICAL BIOGRAPHY OF F. D. R.
by James MacGregor Burns".. . "
Probably the greatest player in the exciting game of politics was F. D. R. The
only man in history to win a third and a fourth presidential term-here is a
political portrait of his courage and of his guile, of failing and of genius, of
the man and the politician, not the legend.
A boldly honest, political portrait of FDR's mastery of the art of politics,
his achievements, his mistakes.
With 60 cartoons and illustrations, this is an unusually perceptive gift item
for those who loved FDR, those who hated him, and for those who want to
know more about him and the turbulent years of depression and war,- A
national best-seller upon publication.
We are proud to include it as a "must" in this list of great
books recommended to our friends and customers.
