Personal Quote:

I find it deeply embarrassing when, because art takes notice of something important, it's claimed that the art is important. It's not. We are talking about marginalia - the top tiny fraction of the whole edifice. When Auden said his poetry didn't save one Jew from the gas chamber, he'd said it all. See more »

Trivia:

His play, "Arcadia" in a Gordon Davidson and Mark Taper Forum production at the Mark Taper Forum Theatre in Los Angeles, California was awarded the 1999 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Production. See more »
