Summary

Can you feel homesick and at home at the same time? Ever felt lost for words but full of things to say? Meet Andrea Davidson.
In Eggenwise, Andrea explores moving to a different country, learning a new language, growing up and falling in love through poems that notice the remarkable in the everyday: a salted parsley sprig, thundering raindrops on windowpanes, and the buzzzZZZzzz of a pesky pet fly.
Through warm and conversational verse, Eggenwise invites you to step into the author's new home in Belgium, to roll your tongue around new words, savour their sound and share your own story through poetry…
Fully illustrated throughout by Amy Louise Evans.

    Winner of seven Molières, the Pulitzer Prize of France, Jean-Claude Grumberg is one of France’s leading dramatists and a distinguished voice of modern European Jewry after the Shoah. His success in portraying contemporary Parisian Jews on the stage represents a new development in European theater and a new aesthetic expression of European Jewish experience and sensibility of the Holocaust and its aftermath, a perspective quite different from either the American or the Israeli one. Grumberg’s Jews are French to their fingertips, yet they have been made more consciously Jewish by the war and the difficulties of reintegrating into a society in which too many neighbors denounced them or ignored their pleas to save their children. Affirming the new status of Jewish culture, Grumberg’s plays insist on the recognition of Jewish identity and uniqueness within the majority societies of Europe.  This volume offers the first English translation of three of Grumberg’s prize-winning plays: The Workplace (L’Atelier, 1979), On the Way to the Promised Land (Vers toi Terre promise, 2006) and Mama’s Coming Back, Poor Orphan (Maman revient, pauvre orphelin, 1994). Presented in the order of the history they record and steeped in Grumberg’s personal experience and insights into contemporary Parisian life, these plays serve as documentary witnesses that begin with the immediate postwar reality and continue up to the end of the twentieth century. Seth Wolitz provides notes on the plays’ themes, structures, characters, and settings, along with an introduction that discusses Grumberg’s place within the emergence of French-Jewish drama and a translation of an interview with the playwright himself.

    Davidson has a loving, observant and wry regard for the frailties of the
    
    human condition. He makes fresh something we thought we knew; writing of the
    
    everyday the way Vermeer might be said to paint it.' — Maura Dooley

    “[A] violent, surrealist romp” from the Tony Award–winning playwright of Hurlyburly and Visiting Edna (The Brown Daily Herald).   David Rabe explores the struggle between hope and anguish in the human spirit in this story of two small-time jewel thieves united in a strangely unsettling friendship and the constant fight to prove to themselves and others how tough they are. But when their frantic scheming suddenly begins to betray them in mysterious ways, they find themselves trapped into a kidnapping and a murder over which they seem to have no control. Or do they? David Rabe’s language creates and recreates reality in constantly surprising ways, magically dramatizing the danger of the power of illusion—and the illusion of power—with force and insight.   “A potluck smorgasbord of surrealism, dream soliloquies, science fiction, noir potboiler and fairy tales, with the ghosts of such other writers as David Mamet, Harold Pinter, Sam Shepard and even novelist Thomas Pynchon hovering nearby . . . boasts ample proof of a top-notch writer at work.” —Chicago Tribune   “A fast-paced, visceral work with a manic, anarchic energy . . . a chaotic examination of power and powerlessness in a frightening, irrational universe.” —The Brown Daily Herald   “[A] surrealist, hilarious, mind-fuck of a play . . . a wild, high-energy ride through plot and action.” —LAist  Praise for David Rabe   “Few contemporary dramatists have dealt with violence, physical and psychological, more impressively than Rabe.” —Kirkus Reviews   “A remarkable storyteller.” —Chicago Tribune   “Rabe’s mastery of dialogue is the equal of Pinter and Mamet put together.” —The Boston Globe.
