Review:

""The Theater of Tony Kushner: Living Past Hope is an insightful and thorough examination of the Kushner canon. In it James Fisher illuminates the renowned playwright's works and influential aspects of his life and career, smartly capitalizing upon readers' familiarity with Kushner's hit play "Angels in America by using it as a basis for comparison with his other works...."
-Mary L. Cutler, University of North Dakata "Modern Drama, Spring 2002
"Fisher's volume...makes abundantly clear through sheer information that the relationship between Kushner and Brecht is begging to be explored within the German Studies classroom and scholarship."
-Norman Roessler
"This book is a must for anyone interested in the theater and for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of Kushner, the man and the writer. While Fisher's research is exhaustive and his analysis deep and probing, his work is accessible and enjoyable. Fisher is that rare scholar whose work is meaningful yet doesn't intentionally confound its readers in an attempt to appear legitimate."
-"Gay People's Chronicle
"The great virtue of this book is Fisher's attempt to present Kushner not as a gay playwright but as one of the prominent political dramatists in the US today."
-"CHOICE
"A valuable book for anyone interested in American drama...offering crisp explications and fact-filled stage histories of Kushner's varied canon. ... My vote is for James Fisher to write the continuing history of Kushner's prolific and prophetic theater. No one is more qualified."
-"World Literature Today
