King Hedley II

By August Wilson

Hardback £32.00

The story of an ex-con in post-Reagan Pittsburgh, 1985, trying to rebuild his life.

Part of August Wilson's Century Cycle, his epic dramatisation of the African American experience in the twentieth century.

'By focusing on the eternal journey of the misplaced African, whose story was the truest account of the American struggle toward freedom and independence, he opened up not only what American theater could be about, but also who could do the telling' Marion McClinton, from her Foreword

King Hedley II is also published in a paperback edition.
