When Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding agreed to work on this TV show, I nearly swooned"). Slightly spinecocked and spine cloth ends very lightly toned and pushed; dustjacket with few tiny spine edge wrinkles. Near Fine condition in a Near Fine dustjacket. Vonnegut claims authorship in his Preface. "I did write it... pretty much... But it would never have occurred to me to put my words in this particular order... some friendly people... with my permission took unrelated incidents from several of my stories and tacked them together to form a rough draft of a script for a ninety-minute TV show." Vonnegut was commissioned to be an advisor and contributor to the script which he worked on with, among others, Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding. A bright, attractive copy.
