Belle Moral : a natural history by Ann-Marie MacDonald( )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ann-Marie MacDonald's love of the fabulous is in full force with this multi-layered reworking of her earlier play, The Arab's Mouth. Following her father's death, amateur scientist Pearl MacIsaac struggles to discover the secret of her family's past, which her father had been kept hidden with the help of the family doctor. Set in Scotland in 1899, this dark and redemptive gothic comedy is a story of family secrets that have come to life and of the birth and evolution of ideas ' and truly a play of morals. Reaching out in two directions to reconcile the extremes of rationalism and romanticism, Belle Moral embraces a complex range of turn-of-the-century thought including Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, contemporary medical beliefs and the concept of eugenics. * * * * * * * * * * Copyright ' 2005 A.M.

As is by William M Hoffman( )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The time is now, the place New York City. Rich, a young writer who is beginning to find success, is breaking up with his longtime lover, Saul, a professional photographer. The split is particularly difficult for Saul, who still loves Rich deeply, but the mood is one of bantering and ironic humor as they divide their belongings. However Rich's idyll with his new lover is short-lived when he learns that he has AIDS and returns to the goodhearted Saul for sanctuary as he awaits its slow and awful progress. Thereafter the action is comprised of a mosaic of brilliantly conceived short scenes, some profoundly moving, some brightly humorous, which capture the pathos of Rich's relationship with friends and family; the cold impersonality of the doctors and nurses who care for him; and the widely diverse aspects of New York's gay community--for which Rich's plight is a chilling reminder of their own peril. In the end the effect of the play is emotionally overwhelming--an honest and unsparing examination of a deeply felt human relationship shattered by a mindless, destructive force which cannot be tempered or turned aside."--
