STRANGE INTERLUDE

New York: Boni and Liveright, 1928
Editorial galley proofs

 

    NOTES:  Numerous editorial corrections throughout.

O'Neill was acutely conscious that the published version of his work was the thing that would live. "The book has to be right," O'Neill would often tell his editor after they had spent days correcting and editing manuscripts and galley proofs. In the case of STRANGE INTERLUDE, O'Neill made so many corrections on the proofs that Liveright found it cheaper to reset the whole thing than to correct each sheet individually.
