Description
"It seemed as though playwright [Edward] Albee was all washed up. It had been decades since he wowed audiences with such radical creations as The Zoo Story and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Then, in 1994, Albee wrote the autobiographical Three Tall Women and won his third Pulitzer Prize. [Mel] Gussow, a New York Times cultural writer and author of books on Beckett and Stoppard, met Albee at the dawn of his career and has been chronicling his life and work ever since. Biographies of living artists are fresh and vital, and Gussow's is that and more. His rendering of the tale of Albee's privileged yet deeply unhappy boyhood as the 'pathologically shy' adopted son of unloving, wealthy parents makes for dramatic reading, as do his accounts of the writing and production of Albee's major works. Gussow considers the ups and downs of Albee's serious personal relationships, and places his achievements firmly within the history of theater, casting Albee as the child of Chekhov and Pirandello, and the father of Shepard and Mamet."Booklist
