1 Longden, Deric A Play On Words
London Bantam 1999 0593044029 / 9780593044025 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good Signed by Author
SIGNED BY AUTHOR on title page "With lots of love". First Edition, First Printing. A near Fine unmarked copy with VG+ complete dustjacket. Ever since Dame Thora Hird breathed life into the role of the author's mother in 'Wide-Eyed and Legless' she had been on at him to write a play based on the sequel 'Lost for Words' but his duties as official guide dog to his blind wife, the writer Aileen Armitage, being at the beck and call of their cats, a somewhat bemused vole and a tap dancing squirrel, and having a book to write, the screenplay took a back seat. Dame Thora kept at him and when she was 86 the script was finally finished and 'Lost for Words' was televised in January 1999 when she was 87. In this book he describes the experience of seeing at close hand his book, and an important part of his life, turn into a film amid the chaos of his private world.
