In order to explore the vexed emotional and legal question of a writer's right to create art from biographical material of another person's life, playwright Donald Margulies creates two of the most vivid and moving fictional characters of his career--Ruth Steiner, an aging author with a romantic past, and her young student Debra Messing, who exploits what she knows about her mentor's life.

Review: Collected Stories

User Review  - Vickie Eisenstein - Goodreads
