"Heavenly bells are ringing, jubilant choirs are singing, and Christmas joy is blanketing the world like freshly fallen snow. But the Yuletide spirit has yet to warm Bishop Henry Brougham's Victorian home. Struggling to raise funds for a new cathedral, the preoccupied young clergyman has neglected his loving wife, Julia, and now only divine intervention can save their marriage! But the powerful and handsome angel sent from above has a mind of his own ... and teaching nortal Henry an immortal lesson in romance isn't all he has planned!"--Container

Idiot's delight by Robert E Sherwood( Book )

31 editions published between 1933 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. A fast-moving story about a group of Europeans and Americans caught in a mountain hotel on the outbreak of a world war, this remarkable play is a commentary on the greed, fear, stupidity and idealism of mankind. A young English couple on their honeymoon, a German scientist, a French munitions magnate, the inscrutable Irene, and the vulgar but lovable American Harry Van are thrown together in a small winter resort in the Alps. For a short time they are forced to depend upon their own resources under threat of an air-raid, which at the last descends upon the few who are left. The play throws into ironic relief the individual human being who, having brought upon himself the obscene idiocy of wholesale destruction by war, wakes up to find that he can do nothing more than make a futile gesture against the forces he has set in action."--Publisher's website

Elena is married to Dr. Anton Drug, a Viennese psychoanalyst. But in the golden days before the fall of the Empire, she had a love affair with Prince Rudolf Maximilian. After World War I and the expulsion of the aristocracy, Elena developed into a responsible, mature woman, and a devoted wife. A group of her former cronies, some of whom have been living in poverty and exile, return to Vienna to attend a party to which Rudolf is (surreptitiously) invited. Elena's old friends press her to attend the party. But she refuses, saying the past means nothing to her, but Anton thinks she should go, if only to prove to herself that she has left the past behind. Rudolf, who eeks out an existence abroad as a taxi driver, arrives incognito and immediately sends for Elena. Elena arrives, and for a moment an illusion of gaiety is established. Rudolf makes violent love to Elena, she runs home, and he follows her, determined to renew their affair. But Elena, though caught in the excitement of old memories and still attracted to Rudolf, knows he belongs to the past, and her husband and the present is the better of the two. But she allows Rudolf to hide in her apartment while Anton arranges for him to escape from the country. The experiment of trying to renew a past that no longer has meaning has been successfully carried out.
