ARTHUR MILLER, NORMAN MAILER and LEON URIS The three authors sign this first day cover honoring Herman Melville First Day Cover signed: "Norman Mailer", "Arthur Miller" and "Leon Uris" in various inks, 6½x3¾. First day cover in the Literary Arts Series (1984) honoring novelist and poet Herman Melville. Postmarked New Bedford, Massachusetts, August 1, 1984. 20¢ stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. American playwright ARTHUR MILLER (1915-2005) raised America's social consciousness with such plays as The Crucible (1953), based on the Salem, Massachusetts witchcraft trials, and Death of a Salesman, the story of a man destroyed by society's false values, for which he won the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Miller, who was the second husband of Marilyn Monroe, also wrote the screenplay for the 1961 film, The Misfits, the last full-length film in which Monroe appeared. NORMAN MAILER (born in 1923), an innovator of the "nonfiction novel", won two Pulitzer Prizes: the first for The Armies of the Night (1969), a nonfiction narrative about a protest march on the Pentagon; the second for The Executioner's Song (1979), about the life and execution of serial killer Gary Gilmore. His first novel, The Naked and the Dead (1948), was a best-selling account of combat in WWII. Mailer, who co-founded "The Village Voice" (1955) and ran for Mayor of New York, has published over three dozen books. In a career spanning four decades, LEON URIS (1924-2003) wrote eleven epic novels, including Exodus (1958), Topaz (1967), QB VII (1970), Trinity (1976), and Redemption (1995). His large-scale, action-filled works often depict courageous individuals caught up in major events of modern history. Before Uris became a novelist, he was a member of the United States Marine Corps, enlisting soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He served in the South Pacific from 1942-1945. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
