This omnibus volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of America's most distinguished writers. Thronton Wilder was equally prolific and successful as a dramatist and novelist. Our Town (1938) and The Skin of Our Teeth (1942) were each awarded the Pulitzer Prize. The Matchmaker (1955) was originally staged as The Merchant of Yonkers (1938) and later appeared as a hit musical, Hello Dolly! (1964).

About the Author:

Thornton Wilder (18971975) is an accomplished novelist and playwright whose works, exploring the connection between the commonplace and cosmic dimensions of human experience, continue to be read and produced around the world. His Bridge of San Luis Rey, one of seven novels, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1928, as did two of his four full-length dramas, Our Town (1938) and The Skin of Our Teeth (1943). Wilder's Matchmaker was adapted as the musical Hello, Dolly! He also enjoyed enormous success with many other forms of the written and spoken word, among them teaching, acting, opera, and film. His screenplay for Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt (1943) remains a classic psychological thriller to this day. Wilder's many honors include the Gold Medal for Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the National Book Committee's Medal for Literature.
