    (On title page) To Berrie and Peg with my / thanks and best regards. / Terry / May 4, 1976

Behrman was called "Berrie" by family members and dear friends.

A biographical approach to Behrman's work, stressing themes of upward social mobility, Jewish identity, and comic vision. Reed judges The Cold Wind and the Warm to be his best play, and his best essays to be superior to his dramatic output.
