"What" a pity I shan't be here to enjoy them " Here is a book that Noel Coward did write; jokes he did make . . . No gleeful misquotations here . . . only the best of Coward's best.

Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You, the center of a storm of controversy for its satire of misplaced trust in religious authority," remains as powerful today as when it was originally produced. The excruciatingly funny The Nature and Purpose of the Universe asks whether Eleanor Mann's Job-like suffering is really her fault, while Titanic takes us into the heart of children's anger with their parents and parents' manipula-tion of...

Although the first European rendering of a Chinese play occurred in 1735, translation of Chinese drama into Western languages has remained a spasmodic, occasional activity. Providing a much needed introduction to the magnitude, range, and quality of Chinese drama, William Dolby's Eight Chinese Plays translates works ranging from an early yuanben play attributed to Lin Tangquing to an anonymous mid-1950s regional play, Identifying Footprints in the Snow.
