Middle of the night : a comedy in three acts by Paddy Chayefsky( Book )

3 editions published between 1957 and 1985 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Middle of the Night, which is billed as "a love story," is the tale of a widower, aged 53, who falls in love with a blonde, aged 24. Mr. Chayesfsky has written it in a minor key, deliberately holding down the emotion and laying emphasis on the homeliness of the material. Everyone is intentionally average - that manufacturer and his daughter and sister; the blonde and her mother, sister and impulsive husband. The reactions to a love affair between a middle-aged man and a girl who is younger than his daughter are average, and the dialogue is composed of average talk. Toward his material Mr. Chayefsky has a kind of O. Henry sense of familiarity. Apparently it is part of his design to underwrite the plot. -- from page 3
