Kobe Abe is probably best known as the author of the novel Woman in the Dunes (1964) and as a leader in experimental fiction. However, as this book illustrates, he was also an active playwright and director in the Seventies and led his own theater, the Abe Studio. Like his novels, Abe's plays were experimental, and he developed his own directing methods to prepare actors for the strange worlds he created for them. Shields, through the use of interviews and her own involvement with the Abe Studio, leads the reader to a deeper understanding of Abe's theatrical experimentation, his rehearsal and performance style, his literary career, and his thoughts and approach to theater, literature, and life. Photographs are in black and white; unfortunately, there is no index. Recommended for academic theater and comparative literature collections.?Susan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta
