Do You Sleep in the Nude?
Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. SIGNED by the author to title page. Dust jacket clipped to top corners of both flaps. 1cm closed tear to corner of head of upper panel. Slightly creased and rolled to spine. *** UK first edition of author’s first book of interviews with writers, entertainers and film stars. Rex Reed (born October 2, 1938) is an American film critic and master of the written interview. These early interviews, with Barbra Streisand, Sandy Dennis, Warren Beatty, Carson McCullers and many others are witty, sharp, opinionated and evocative. ‘I write what I see, sense, touch, smell, and taste,’ he writes in the introduction. His tastes are conservative. ‘If there is anything more excruciating than sitting through a Michelangelo Antonioni film, it’s sitting through a Michelangelo Antonioni interview,’ he writes in the first, unforgettable piece of the collection. A highly entertaining celebration and put-down of cultural life at the end of the 1960s.
