"Poses a fascinating set of questions: why do we become what we are? And if we were able to go back in time, and deal with unanswered questions, would we really know any more about ourselves? Edward Howe, a young physicist whose life has reached a point of stasis, endeavors to discover his true self by recreating the people and events of his past: his parents; himself when younger; his first love; and the grandfather he hardly knew. As the play progresses the people of his fantasy, made real, coexist-exist with those of his present life: his parents grown older; and the girl with whom he is now involved; until a mosaic of mingled actions begins to form. But while the orchestration of his emotional rebirth expands Eddie's self-knowledge, it also teaches him that some scars never heal and that, although he may come to understand the past, he can never undo its power to influence the present, and the future, be it for good or ill."--
Domestic issues by Corinne Jacker( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Having been granted amnesty through the efforts of his wealthy and politically well-connected older brother, Larry, Stephen Porter is writing a book about his years as a violent radical activist. As he sorts through the events of his revolutionary past he is disturbed by the recurring appearance of a spectral figure—a fellow cell member who was killed when a bomb that Stephen was building accidentally detonated. He is also shaken by the unexpected arrival of his estranged wife, Ellen, who is still a hunted terrorist and who is determined to win back both Stephen's affection and his allegiance to the cause. Her appearance is particularly distressing to Larry and his wife, Susan, who importune Stephen to settle down and join the family business, putting his radical days behind him. The resulting conflicts form the dramatic heart of the play, as Stephen struggles to come to terms with the ideological and emotional compulsions which beset him—his conviction as to the justness of the cause he has served, and the guilt he feels about the destructive acts which this has led to. In the end there are no easy answers, but, instead, a sort of tentative accommodation with the changed reality, both political and personal, of which an older and wiser Stephen, with the passage of time, has inevitably become aware."--
