Arthur Laurents

Published by Batsford

If he had done nothing more than write the book for the musicals West Side Story and Gypsy, Arthur Laurents would be assured a place in the pantheon of American theater

But he has done much more, including directing, screenwriting, and playwriting

Here, for the first time, is an anthology of seven of Laurents' most acclaimed and challenging plays

It begins with Home of the Brave, the play that launched Laurents' career

This wartime drama known for its frank treatment of anti-Semitism and war trauma remains as potent today as it was when it opened on Broadway in 1945

The anthology continues through some of Laurents' most recent work, including 2 Lives, a witty, frequently poignant portrait of an elderly gay couple confronting mortality and coming to terms with their lives

Also included are The Enclave, Jolson Sings Again, My Good Name, Closing Bell, and Attacks on the Heart

Spanning nearly 60 years and covering a wide variety of topical and emotional terrain, this is an important book from an American theater legend
