A Chekhovian comedy from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lillian Hellman about the sad and funny frailties of human existence. As the summer of 1949 draws to a close, a group of middle-aged friends are gathering for their annual retreat at a genteel Southern resort. An acquaintance from the past thrusts himself into the yearly gathering, forcing them to re-examine their mundane yet seemingly idyllic existence, the opportunities they've lost, and the lives that have passed them by.

    " Rather ponderous as a read...interesting tidbit is Dashiell Hammett's contribution to the play shortly before he was nabbed by Joe McCarthy and company for being a "communist." It is definitely better live, than in print, and Hammett's lines for Griggs are the most moving in the play. "

    " This book really showed a different perspective of the atomic bombings than what our textbooks say. I think I like the view in this story better. I'm so glad Mariko found new hope and purpose for her life. "
