Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the first woman playwright to win a Tony Award, Wendy Wasserstein was a Broadway luminary. But with her high-pitched giggle and unkempt curls, she projected an image of warmth and familiarity, and was the cherished confidante to many. Still she kept her inner life a secret, hiding the pain of her family's past and her own medical odyssey from those closest to her. An intimate study of a complicated woman, Wendy and the Lost Boys is also a nuanced study of the generation she came to represent. Book jacket.
