THE EDMONTON QUEEN *NOT A RIVERBOAT STORY - INSIDE A DYNASTY OF DRAG, Collective Books Staff; Darrin Hagen; Timothy J. Anderson, (editor); Candas Jane Dorsey, (editor)
2 Collective Books Staff; Darrin Hagen; Timothy J. Anderson, (editor); Candas Jane Dorsey, (editor) THE EDMONTON QUEEN *NOT A RIVERBOAT STORY - INSIDE A DYNASTY OF DRAG
Edmonton, AB Slipstream Books 1997 1895836468 / 9781895836462 Second Printing Paperback Near Fine 
Trade PB; B&W Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 166 pages; Remainder mark bottom page edges. This is a hilarious view of the stage play and its wild goings on. This book, based on a award-winning one-queen play from four-time Sterling Award winner Darrin Hagen, is a portrait not only of one life but of a decade in the glamorous and decadent world created by a dynasty of young drag icons. In the club called Flashback, a generation of queens sashayed to stardom. Small town boys became someone or something else as they accessorized their loneliness and alienation as gay men and discovered instead a community spirit. Some are dead now, some have gone on to other things, but the family they were is remembered fondly, humerously and ironically in this brilliant witty book.

3 Craig, J. Marshall You're Lucky If You're Killed; including full text & music of the 1933 War Play
New York Iuniverse 2003 059529300X / 9780595293001 Reprint Paperback Very Good- 
Some bumping and curling of card cover corners ; A tight solid book. ; Trade PB; B&W Illustrations; 0.41 x 9 x 6 Inches; 149 pages; Fergus, ON-born medical student Norman Craig wasn't yet 20 when he went to Egypt in 1915 with the Royal Army Medical Corps. He soon transferred, however, to the Royal Naval Air Service, finishing the war as a flight commander, leading a squadron of Sopwith Camels stationed in Mudros. By war's end, most of his boyhood friends had been killed. In 1932, after the town council he described as a group of unreasoning pacifists had again put off the construction of a war memorial in Fergus, Craig took matters into his own hands. He wrote 'You're Lucky If You're Killed', and produced it in June, 1933, using a local cast and crew. It took another two years but finally came Craig's Dawn Parade unveiling the monument which represents any small town in Canada. The play itself; one of Canada's first has never been seen again, despite some attempts in the early 1950s to resurrect & publish the work. Craig wanted people to remember the war dead, not his own actions. In this book, Dr. Craig's grandson, a Hollywood-based writer and film director makes public for the first time in 70 years the original text & music of the play, as well as an overview of the events that sparked its creation.

Death of a Salesman; certain private conversations in two acts and a requiem, Miller, Arthur
5 Miller, Arthur Death of a Salesman; certain private conversations in two acts and a requiem
New York Viking Press 1949 1st Canadian; First Printing Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Decorative endpapers 
Orange cloth boards show light edge wear, small corner bumps and light soiling, sticker shadow on front board. ; A tight solid book. Statement "Published by Viking Press Inc. in March 1949' with no additional printings mentioned. Dated 1949 on title page. The endpapers are comprised of a reproduction of the stage setting of the play by the setting designer for the play, J Mielziner. Also stated is that this was bound and printed in Canada. Canadian edition was simultaneous with the US. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 139 pages; "Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. In the person of Willy Loman, the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity—and a play that compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room."
