Collected Stories

By Donald Margulies

Paperback £14.99

A play exploring the vexed emotional and legal question of a writer's right to create art from another person's life.

Ruth Steiner, an ageing author who never wrote about her youthful affair with real-life poet Delmore Schwartz, is confounded by one of her students, who, after publishing a much-praised short-story collection, follows up with a novel that clearly draws on her mentor's affair.

Donald Margulies' play Collected Stories premiered at South Coast Repertory in 1996, and was presented on Broadway in 2010. The play was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1997.
