Read full description of the books:
A sequence of scenes which jump around in time — the earliest in Nazi-occupied France and the later ones seeming like they could belong to current time. An odd pair of female characters and a surprising end. I had to recheck repeatedly the dates at the beginnings of scenes to keep track of how they all fit together, and have no idea how this would be followed in a live performance. I learned of this play from a tribute to the playwright's birthday (06/05/1947) on Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac.
