message 1: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited May 20, 2010 11:28AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Deleted (with regret) Pinter's "Homecoming" -- though written in 1964, only published in 1965 -- and Neil Simon's "Barefoot in the Park" (1963).

Still a pretty good year for literature, though, wasn't it?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Not bad, not bad at all.


message 3: by Reese (new)

Reese GR's posted year of publication for Cleary's RIBSY is 1923, but it was originally published in 1964.

Fixed. (Loved that book!) :o)
