(Rice, Elmer). Hogan, Robert THE INDEPENDENCE OF ELMER RICE
Carbondale and Edwardsville: Southern Illinois University Press, (1965). 0809301776 / 9780809301775 First edition, first printing. Crosscurrents/Modern Critiques. Hardcover. Fine, as-new, in a price-clipped, near fine, mildly age-toned dust jacket. Preface by Harry T. Moore. 164 pages, including index.
A study of Rice as a man of the theatre, and of his plays as plays, not as texts. The book was an outgrowth of the author's association with Rice while directing an unproduced Rice play, and it benefits from firsthand discussions with the playwright.
