1 LIPTON, JAMES, BOB FOSSE & GWEN VERDON Mirrors - By James Lipton
New York St. Martin's Press 1981 
First Edition. Signed by the author, James Lipton, and by the great Broadway choreographer, Bob Fosse, and dancer and actress, Gwen Verdon, both of whom have contributed comments which are printed on the dust jacket. Also signed by the book's dedicatee, James Lipton's wife, Kedakai Turner Lipton, “Kedakai,” above the dedication which lovingly reads: “For my wife, Kedakai Turner Lipton, who did me the small service of redefining my universe.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. A novel set in the world of professional dance in New York. James Lipton is perhaps best known as the creator and host of Bravo television's interview / talk-show series, Inside the Actor's Studio, for which he has received 12 Emmy nominations and enduring popularity. He is an accomplished student of acting and directing under the greatly respected acting teacher, Stella Adler, film and television production and directing at New York University and at The New School, as well as voice, modern dance, classical ballet, and jazz technique. He has performed on Broadway and has acted in and written for several television soap operas. He is also the author of the terrific best-selling book on language, An Exaltation of Larks, and has published works in Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, and The Paris Review. Bob Fosse comments, from the front panel of the dust jacket: “Mr. Lipton has obviously observed Broadway musicals and dancers of varying dedication and ambition carefully. He has written about them with compassion, humor, and sensuality, and great authenticity. The all-night dance rehearsal scene was so real my muscles ached after reading it.” Other jacket blurbs from the rear panel, include those from other well-known Broadway actors, writers, and personalities, including Neil Simon, Clive Barnes, Joanne Woodward, Fernando Bujones (ballet dancer), Cy Coleman (composer), Ann Reinking, and Pete Hamill.
