2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the success of Philadelphia, Here I Come! in 1964, Brian Friel has written over twenty plays, successively confirming his reputation as a major dramatist of the twentieth century. But Friel had written plays and short stories before that, giving up his teaching job to become a fulltime writer in 1960 and living for part of that time in the United States." "This collection of essays, diary extracts and interviews from 1964 to 1999 delves into his work and life both before and after his landmark play. Highlighting his working processes and analysing the work in relation to both social and political sensibilities, the volume offers a wealth of material in celebration of a writer described by the Observer as 'the most profound and poetic of contemporary Irish dramatists'."--Jacket
