This third collection of John Osborne's dramatic work includes three classic plays for the stage which confirm his reputation as one of the greatest British playwrights of the twentieth century. A Patriot for Me 'It is a landmark play in its open treatment of homosexuality and in the breadth of its historical canvas... few post-war plays have dealt so brilliantly with the way the individual, in rejecting the ethos of his society, also uncannily reflects it.' Guardian Luther 'The language is urgent and sinewy, packed with images that derive from bone, blood and marrow; the prose, especially in Luther's sermons, throbs with a rhetorical zeal that has not been heard in English historical drama since the seventeenth century.' Kenneth Tynan Inadmissible Evidence 'This is a work of stunning and intemperate power, a great bellow of rage and pain... there is a self-lacerating honesty about his writing that few other playwrights have come close to matching.' Daily Telegraph

In 1956 John Osborne's Look Back in Anger changed the course of English theatre. 'Look Back in Anger presents post-war youth as it really is. To have done this at all would be a significant achievement; to have done it in a first play is a minor miracle. All the qualities are there, qualities one had despaired of ever seeing on stage - the drift towards anarchy, the instinctive leftishness, the automatic rejection of "official" attitudes, the surrealist sense of humour . . . the casual promiscuity, the sense of lacking a crusade worth fighting for and, underlying all these, the determination that no one who dies shall go unmourned.' Kenneth Tynan, Observer, 13 May 1956 'Look Back in Anger . . . has its inarguable importance as the beginning of a revolution in the British theatre, and as the central and most immediately influential expression of the mood of its time, the mood of the "angry young man".' John Russell Taylor

Wenn Tassie abends ihr Vogelkostüm anlegt und in wildem Lauf über die Kartoffelfelder stürmt, um Mäuse und andere Schädlinge zu vertreiben, hat sie ganz kurz das Gefühl, wirklich zu fliegen. Tassie Keltjin ist zwanzig Jahre alt und verlässt die elterliche Farm irgendwo im Mittleren Westen. Amerika rüstet zum Einsatz in Afghanistan, und sie beginnt zu studieren, ahnungslos und rührend entflammt für Sylvia Plath und Simone de Beauvoir. Sie braucht einen Job und findet ihn als Teilzeit-Kindermädchen bei Sarah und Edward, die dabei sind, ein Kind zu adoptieren. Aus Mary, zwei Jahre alt, weiße Mutter, schwarzer Vater, wird Emmie, Kind weißer Mittelschichteltern, und Tassie zu ihrer Hauptbezugsperson. Mit der fragilen Anmut einer Schlafwandlerin gerät Tassie in eine erste Liebe und immer tiefer hinein in das komplizierte Leben einer fremden Familie. Wie fern ihr in einem knappen Jahr die ländliche Kindheit, Eltern und Bruder gerückt sind, merkt Tassie, als sie jäh sowohl ihre Liebe als auch ihren Job verliert. Die Schlafwandlerin wacht auf und nichts ist mehr, wie es war, am wenigsten sie selbst. Mit ihrem neuen Roman zeigt Lorrie Moore, was Literatur im besten Fall zu leisten vermag. Mit Tassie schenkt sie dem Leser eine ganz und gar lebendige, ganzund gar zauberhafte und ergreifende Figur, und während sie mit dem Witz, der zarten Klugheit, für die sie berühmt ist, deren Geschichte erzählt, packt sie wie nebenbei große gesellschaftsrelevante Themen an: Adoption und unterschwelligen Rassismus, Amerikas kriegerische Außenpolitik.
