“A valuable showcase of an important writer’s early career. . . . The centerpiece of the book is Kramer’s masterful script for Women in Love. . . . A movie that stands the test of time very well. . . . A Minor Dark Age is. . . . full of lyrical, dreamlike language. . . . Just Say No is a different animal altogether, a rollicking political satire. . . . Kramer laments the state of modern theater and exhorts fellow playwrights to create work that is ‘about’ something. Kramer’s work, and his life, have clearly been ‘about’ something.” Jim Nawrocki, The Bay Area Reporter

Larry Kramer is among the most courageous writers of our time and has been described by Susan Sontag as “one of America’s most valuable troublemakers.” His plays, screenplays, novels, and journalism have exposed important social and political issues in our society and sought a deeper meaning for love, loss, and life. In the title work, the Oscar-nominated screenplay for Women in Love, Kramer intersperses his memories and reflections on the movie’s making, as he does for the writing of the plays included here: Sissies’ Scrapbook, A Minor Dark Age, and the political farce Just Say No. The publication of this volume throws much insight on the development of Larry Kramer’s important literary career and will be of special interest to any student of film or stage.
