This was on Paula's reading list for us playwrights at the ACA -- and it turns out I had a copy that was given to me by David Jaffe at the O'Neill -- so I'm-a-reading it.
Actually, even though it's a text book, and I do find myself needing a nap after an hour or so -- it is fascinating stuff.
-- before I realized that this book that Paula said to read was the SAME book as the one given to me by DBJ -- I looked it up at Amazon (and e-bay). My GOD! The price of textbooks is INSANE! Completely out of sinc with reality. WHAT A FRICKIN' RACKET the TEXTBOOK industry in AMERICA is! Sheesh.
I'm reading a used copy (spent about an hour erasing underlines passages yesterday -- pencil -- and today my dog made off with my eraser). Sheesh.
