Summary
  • Writing Wrongs: The Work of Wallace Shawn is a close and personal look into the life and literary work of the man whom Joseph Papp called "a dangerous writer." As the son of the late William Shawn, renowned editor of the New Yorker, Wallace Shawn was born into privilege and trained to thoroughly liberal values, but his plays relentlessly question the liberal faith in individualism and common decency. W. D. King's incisive critiques of the plays and inquiry into the life
  • and times of their author develop a portrait of Shawn as a major figure in contemporary theater
