Praise For August Wilson: Three Plays

“With the benefit of 20 years of hindsight, one can posit that the maiden performance of "Ma Rainey" inaugurated the August Wilson era.  As both an individual playwright and a hub of theatrical activity, he has defined his time in the way Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams, Neil Simon and Edward Albee defined the three preceding generations.”
--New York Times on Ma Rainey

“Few things in publishing can be called a coup. This is. . . . A handsome, must-have volume of August Wilson's first major plays."
