What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"A deliciously astringent attack on safety and self-satisfaction." —Variety

"[Albee] is rightly recognized as one of the key figures in twentieth century American drama, a peer of Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, and Sam Shepard, and a dramatist of exemplary courage, ambition, and resilience." —New York Review of Books
