Edward Albee: A Singular Journey  

Edward Albee: A Singular Journey $29.95 ex GST
$32.95 inc GST

With frankness and critical acumen, and drawing on extensive first-hand conversations with the playwright, Gussow offers fresh insights into Albee’s life while at the same time providing vivid portraits of Albee’s relationships with the people closest to him. The book describes Albee’s life as the adopted child of rich, unloving parents, and covers the highs and lows of his career. In 1960 Albee electrified the American theatre world with The Zoo Story, and followed it two years later with the extraordinary Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Proclaimed as the playwright of his generation, he went on to win three Pulitzer Prizes for his searing and innovative plays. He returned in 1994 with Three Tall Women, a major West End production. 

A fascinating and illuminating account of a great dramatist in search of his identity - Sir John Mortimer.
