Michelle M. Mattson Assistant Professor of Germanic Studies,Columbia University

'Well worth recommending to students of post-1945 drama. At the same time, it is considerably more than just a students' introduction.'MLR'This is a useful study about a controversial playwright… The … argument is … solid and convincingly presented.'AUMLA'Mattson's book is a valuable contribution to studies of modern German drama; not only because it provides an extended case-study of one author's work but it also continues and applies highly interesting and productive arguments and ideas on dramatic form.'Theatre Research International
