About the Author

Thornton Wilder (1897-1975) is the only writer to win Pulitzer Prizes for both fiction and drama.

J. D. McClatchy (1945-2018), volume editor, was the author of many books of poetry and essays, including Plundered Hearts: New and Selected Poems (2014), and the editor of nine Library of America publications. He wrote the libretto for Ned Rorem's operatic version of Our Town, taught at Yale University, and served as editor of The Yale Review.

Reviews

"While all of Wilder's work is intelligent, non-synthetic and often moving, as well as funny, it is Our Town that makes the difference. It is probably the finest play ever written by an American." --Edward Albee

"The Library of America earns a standing ovation from grateful theater lovers for its triumphant assemblage of all of Thornton Wilder's dramatic writings into one magnificent, indispensable volume. Seeing the totality of this great American playwright's dizzyingly, dazzlingly wide range of work will be especially revelatory for a new generation of playwrights." --John Guare
