by Maria M. Delgado, Caridad Svich

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This marvelous collection of tributes, brief essays, reminiscences, and journal selections traces the work--and working life--of the multitalented Maria Irene Fornes, a playwright, director, and teacher. The writers make up a "Who's Who" of theater, with contributions from Terrence McNally, Susan Sontag, Tony Kushner, and Caryl Churchill, to name only a few. Of special interest are the extensive chronology of Fornes's productions and a 28-page interview from 1997 between Fornes and editor Delgado (English and drama, Univ. of London). This homage makes clear just how important Fornes's work has been. For example, seeing how many people were influenced by her play Fefu and Her Friends inspires one to read the work and to look for a current production. Recommended for academic libraries and libraries with theater collections.--Susan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
