I want to recommend a book I just read, Tony Kushner In Conversation, to those who liked Angels In America or just like reading the spoken thoughts of an eloquent, witty gay playwright. The book was first published about five years ago so some of the references are dated, but that doesn't matter (much) when we're talking about convictions. Which is what a lot of this book is about, being a selection of interviews in which Kushner speaks his mind with sometimes frightening-both to the reader and the playwright, in retrospect-candor. 6 people found this helpful.

Tony Kushner has, almost overnight, become the premier American male playwright to "represent" the 1990s, as David Mamet and August Wilson dominated critical attention in the 1980s. The phenomenally positive response to Angels in America was matched by the equally enthusiastic reception of its young, politically engaged playwright, who impressed journalists and scholars with his eloquent intellect, wit, and moral convictions.

Actually I bought this book for strictly "scholar" reasons. It was the right one to buy, brought me a few thoughts, also, revealed many of the issues related to Tony Kushner and his works. What I find amazing in this book, however, is it's charm, wit, sometimes irony. And, therefore, in addition to "scholar" reasons I got also a great book full of real great, funny, moving and grand... talking... :-))) I'd really like to recomend it not only to people doing research in gay/queer/theater and performance in general topics, but also to those, who're seeking confessions of a lively and exploring mind.
