The fabulous life of Sarah Bernhardt by Louis Verneuil( Book )

11 editions published between 1942 and 1971 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verneuil was Sarah Bernhardt's last playwright, and her grandson by marriage, and she told him her story, during the last years of her life. The public life of this greatest name in theatre is well established; her personal life until now has been conjecture. This will provide future biographers with definitive basic material, although of itself, it is not destined to be the definitive biography. Sarah's childhood and girlhood were not happy--she was an illegitimate child of a famous courtesan, unwanted, unloved. In childhood she became a student of acting at the Conservatoire; her debut was unnoteworthy, her press unfavorable, her temperament was difficult and against her, for almost ten years of her career. Then at 25 she had her first success, and from that time on her star was in the ascendant, and she maintained her reputation as the outstanding genius of the stage until her first retirement at 70. Lovers, one child, an unhappy marriage, and a lifetime of hard work (she went back to the stage at 76, even though she had lost one leg). Ardent, impulsive, extravagant, with a compelling charm, she was a fascinating, "fabulous" figure

The whiteheaded boy : a comedy in three acts by Lennox Robinson( Book )

5 editions published between 1921 and 1949 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First presented at Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 1916, "The Whiteheaded Boy" is set in a typical Irish small-town household which is thrown into a frenzy, as the play begins, with the return of son Denis from Dublin's Trinity College. He is the whiteheaded boy of the title--the apple of his mother's eye and as a result the focus of his siblings' resentment--who has just failed his exams. Rather than face the shame of this failure, the family plan to ship him off to Canada; he just wants to marry his sweetheart, get a job, and settle down in the country. Hijinks, marriage proposals, bribes, and counter-bribes ensue as the family members exploit and misinterpret Denis' situation
