"The collection opens with the now classic 'Moonchildren, ' described by Walter Kerr as 'the definitive play' about the young people of the '60s, a generation that no longer believes in traditional values but has not yet found values of its own. 'Fishing, ' a sort of unofficial sequel to 'Moonchildren, ' takes another look at these young people at a transitional point in their lives--over thirty--as they are trying to learn to trust each other and themselves. 'At Home' and 'Abroad, ' two linked one-act plays, delve into the breakup of a marriage and its afternath. 'Loose Ends, ' a play about the 'moonchildren' grown up, deals with two lovers' discovery, after a decade, that love is not enough."--Cover, [p. 4]
