Edward Albee

Early Edward Albee

A nice reminder of early career uncertainty from the forward of the 1960 edition of Zoo Story:

Careers are funny things. They begin mysteriously and,  just as mysteriously, they can end; and I am at just the very beginning of what I hope will be a long and satisfying life in the theatre. But, whatever happens, I am grateful to have had my novice work received so well, and so soon.
