Fiddler On the Roof

Joseph Stein

Book Club Edition (1964)


Are you like me, and when you see this illustration do the opening notes of
Fiddler On the Roof creep into your head... and do you grin?

This is an old Book Club edition, and I can tell you where I got it.
On Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley in a used book store... probably Moe's.
Or maybe Cody's or Shakespeare & Co.'s... the happiest hours of my life
were spent in those bookshelves.

Back then I never dreamed I'd be at a preBroadway reading one day
and a friend would suddenly turn me around in the lobby to say,
"I'd like you to meet someone." And I'd shake hands with Joseph Stein.
That's all... then we both went back to our seats. But that was quite enough.
