of all the (otherwise very few) books that I have read, though I have liked others better, this is the one I would cite as the best example that really good literature is really good for unexplainable reasons. I never thought I would like any play about some hormonally deranged chick who takes a fancy to her hubsand´s son; my good friend and artistically challenged beerbuddy Bican would probably read an abstract and call it stupid.
I won´t bother mentioning how great this play is and exactly what its virtues are. I´ll just annoy a lot of people by saying this: you can keep your brainy modern lit, there´s nothing like a classic. I´m a bloody old-school girl!
