Very clean hardcover book in original unclipped dust jacket. Gray cloth boards with stamped gold lettering on cover and spine. No fading, bumping or wear. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean with clean endpapers - no names, writing or marks. Translated by Bernard Frechtman. 118 pages. Dust jacket has slight age-toning, very small edge chip at bottom of front panel (size of a match head), not price clipped (3.50 on front inside flap). Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Setting is a brothel in the midst of a revolution that has wiped out all the real holders of power except the Chief of Police, who now enlists the regular customers to play out the fantasy roles that destiny has denied them. In a series of macabre, climactic scenes, the playwright develops his mocking view of man and society.
