The incomparable Max; a play by Jerome Lawrence( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play begins with the appearance of 'the incomparable Max' himself--critic, wit, caricaturist and satirist of matchless brilliance. The action then moves smoothly on to Max's encounter with Enoch Soames, a down-and-out poet whose arrogance far outstrips his accomplishments. In the second portion of the play, Max meets one A.V. Laider, a young man deeply interested in palmistry, and the glimpses of the future it reputedly can provide. Their casual discussion of the subject turns steadily more gripping--and horrifying--as the action of the play depicts the dreadful moment when Laider, aware that a train is about to be wrecked, lacked the will power to warn his friends of the impending disaster. But again an unexpected final turn of plot saves the situation from tragedy--and ends the play in the same jaunty, delightfully witty manner as it began."--From publisher's website
