I want to share information about this wonderful book I am reading about the Playwright Wendy Wasserstein.
I can’t write about the book just yet – I’m not nearly finished with it. But, it’s the kind of book that refuses to let you go.
Wendy passed away from cancer at age 55. She is the author of the Heidi Chronicles, The Sisters Rosensweig, Isn’t it Romantic, Uncommon Women and Others, and more.
For the Heidi Chronicles, she won the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award. You don’t have to be a lover of the theatre to love this book.
I’ve never really been able to accept that she’s gone. She would have had more Pulitzer Prizes’ and Tony’s if her light still burned.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. ~ Shakespeare
