Writer/critic/punk/geek extraordinaire Michael Marano told me this play written by Robert Shaw (yes, that Robert Shaw) was a kick in the teeth. Holy damn, was it ever. A maybe-crazy, maybe-not ex-Nazi is brought back to Israel to stand trial for his war crimes. Chilling, moving, thought-provoking, and written to within an inch of it's life. Well worth tracking down.

This is a lovely book. It's literature for its own sake. There is no thesis nor message to it. It's just beautifully wrought language, with an evoked rather than descriptive narrative.
