Wendy Wasserstein (1950-2006) kept her secrets well. At forty-eight, she surprised even friends with a baby whose father still remains unknown; when she died six years later, most of the world did not know that she had been critically ill. This authorized biography of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright raises the curtain on a woman whose plays were, on one level deeply autobiographical, and on another, cloaked some of the main issues of her life in the stories of other. Wasserstein's choice of biographers was apt: Veteran journalist and author Julie Salamon (Hospital; Facing the Wind) has already been hailed for her "perceptive and empathetic; but also gently unsparing?. Superbly nuanced portrait" of the dramatist.
