Editorial Reviews

Jewish Book World
Less well known than he should be, Donald Margulies, five of whose plays are collected in this one volume, is one of the Jewish community's finest playwrights. As in many other plays by Jews on Jewish topics, anti-Semitism is often an issue in Margulies' productions; but so are the post-war effects of the Holocaust, the difficulties confronting the Jewish artist and his or her art in a post-Holocaust era, and the meaning of the "American Dream" to the modern American Jew. As always, Margulies tests the limits of the Jewish consciousness in an effort to assess its meaning in contemporary society.
