About the Author
Thornton Wilder was one of the most distinguished and versatile American writers of the 20th century. Among many honors, he was awarded three Pulitzer Prizes: two for drama, one for fiction. His stage works include Our Town, The Skin of Our Teeth, and The Matchmaker--remaining among the best-loved and most-produced plays of all time.
Reviews

"Because so many of the plays we see nowadays are really suited to the small screen, it is easy to forget that a stage, no matter its size, can contain the cosmos. No one understood this better than Thornton Wilder, whose plays show us how to see the infinite in the utterly mundane."

-- "Howard Kissel, New York Daily News"

"Read these plays to celebrate that purity of intention that Wilder brought to the American theatre."

-- "John Guare, 1997"

"Wilder's tone is dry, fond; if God were to dabble in anthropology, and the recording angels to write with wry humor and infinite tolerance of human folly, this is how the holy books would read."

-- "The New York Times on The Long Christmas Dinner"
"One of the shortest, and sweetest, theatrical meals in the repertory."-- "Los Angeles Times on The Long Christmas Dinner"
