Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
McNally has proven to be a remarkable playwright with truly enjoyable works that warm the heart, make one chuckle, and even touch one's soul. His book for the musical Kiss of the Spider Woman has become a cult work, and the film version of Frankie and Johnny at the Clair de Lune starred Al Pacino. The 15 short plays here act as snapshots of this remarkable man's long career and deserve a place in the archives of his achievements. They include Bringing It All Back Home; The Ritz (which was filmed in the 1970s); Prelude and Liebestod; Andres's Mother (which was made into a TV movie); and Hidden Agendas. Though one wishes to see the actual productions, these plays are a delight to read. Indeed, they deserve to be read and re-read; their eloquence clears the mind of day-to-day clutter. Highly recommended for all libraries.-H. Robert Malinowsky, Univ of Illinois at Chicago. Lib.
