Hi: This is my brief review of The Inheritance. Love the Play! - Jeff , Bookseller @ East End Books Ptown

This is a brilliant Play! I saw Part I & II in London at the Noel Coward Theatre in November. Remarkable acting from a cast that moves you to tears, laughter, reflection, and back to tears! Read this Play Script as soon as possible!

Matthew Lopez has written a brilliant play that made me feel recognized & valued as a gay man, and part of not only a great LGBTQ family but also a larger community of straight allies and friends.
It also takes a look at those we’ve lost and the way they remain in our hearts. A brilliant theatrical performance! It was difficult to sleep the night I saw Part I & II - it’s so much to think about.

  

I loved the traces of Howard’s End interspersed throughout the Play and E.M. Forster appearing among the cast of Characters, as they’re trying to “speak their truth.” This is one of those Plays you’ll be re-reading.

The Inheritance has so much to say and I was thrilled by the talk, display and pure love of books and literature that you see throughout this Play! The renewed call to fight for what’s great about our Country as we face some of our darkest times - made me freshly enthused and ready to
Fight to defend to our rights.

 

And what a powerful look at the many people we lost to AIDS and the beautiful remembrance of the people and trails that were blazed, along with the links between generations of gay men from the past to the present - all tied together to the responsibilities we have to one another - as a community at large. There’s so much to think about and reflect on. This is one of those performances that you want to get on a plane and fly “across the pond” to see!

We can't wait to sell this great new book from our Summer neighbor, John Waters! Pre-order your book now! Look for signed copies and special appearances. Watch our website & social media for details.

No one knows more about everything--especially everything rude, clever, and offensively compelling--than John Waters. The man in the pencil-thin mustache, auteur of the transgressive movie classics Pink Flamingos, Polyester, the original Hairspray, Cry-Baby, and A Dirty Shame, is one of the world's great sophisticates, and in Mr. Know-It-All he serves it up raw: how to fail upward in Hollywood; how to develop musical taste from Nervous Norvus to Maria Callas; how to build a home so ugly and trendy that no one but you would dare live in it; more important, how to tell someone you love them without emotional risk; and yes, how to cheat death itself. Through it all, Waters swears by one undeniable truth: "Whatever you might have heard, there is absolutely no downside to being famous. None at all."

Studded with cameos of Waters's stars, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst, and Tracey Ullman, and illustrated with unseen photos from Waters's personal collection, Mr. Know-It-All is Waters's most hypnotically readable, upsetting, revelatory book--another instant Waters classic.

Correspondents Cover Image

Published: Grove Press - May 15th, 2019

I had dinner with Tim earlier this month and received an advance copy of his brilliant new book, Correspondents. Meet Tim in July at East End Books Ptown. I could not put this book down from the Prologue to the conclusion. The book begins with one of the best Prologues I’ve read and ends in a devastating manner, that guarantees you’ll have difficulty pausing before the conclusion!

 

 

Tim Murphy is the author of Christodora, longlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal. He has reported on HIV/AIDS for twenty years, for such publications as POZ Magazine, where he was an editor and staff writer, Out, Advocate, and New York. He lives in Brooklyn.

 

·  Correspondents moves from suburban Boston to the Middle East to tell the remarkable and poignant story of the youngest child of a sprawling Irish-Lebanese family, a journalist who is posted to Baghdad during the Iraq War, and the young interpreter who befriends her.

·  Correspondents describes an America where immigrants are the foundation of the country and is closely based on Murphy's own Irish-Lebanese family. His depiction of Irish immigrants is reminiscent of Colm Tóibín's Brooklyn, and his deft weaving of a multigenerational story of immigrants, settlers, and refugees evokes Jeffrey Eugenides's Middlesex or Imbolo Mbue's Behold the Dreamers.

·  Murphy's previous book, Christodora, was longlisted for the 2017 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and widely praised by critics. In the Washington Post, Garth Greenwell praised it as "[A] rich, complicated story." The New York Times called it "[A] thrillingly accomplished novel . . . Christodora sometimes seems the product of spirit possession." It was named an Indie Next Pick as well as a Best Book of the Year by the Guardian

Christodora was optioned by Paramount TV for a limited TV series directed by Ira Sachs and produced by Cary Fukunaga, who produced the award-winning Beasts of No Nation and directed True Detective and Jane Eyre.
