In the Wake

By Lisa Kron

Paperback £14.99

A bold, ambitious, political play about contemporary America - 'a candidate to be the Angels in America of the Bush II decade' (San Francisco Chronicle).

On Thanksgiving Day, after the controversial 2000 US election, political junkie Ellen gathers with family and friends in her cramped New York City apartment. Soon after, she experiences an unexpected, passionate encounter, and discovers that ideas about America and our own selves are not as fixed as they once seemed.

Press Quotes

'Funny, moving, and undeniably sexy. The heady blend of smart dialogue and characters... makes it a candidate to be the Angels in America of the Bush II decade.'

San Francisco Chronicle

'Luminous... Kron marries vigorous political probing with pitch-perfect humor and heartache.'

New Yorker

'In the Wake is a serious and engrossing examination of a recent period in our history. It is a big, ambitious work.'
