About the Author:

Talented, profane, outrageous Lillian Hellman, author and playwright, lived dramatically. Her intermittent companion, Feibleman, 25 years younger than she, wrote the fond but frank Lilly: Reminiscences of Lillian Hellman in 1988. In 1998 he wove telling dialog from it into Cakewalk. Elaine Stritch, ideal as the scrappy Lilly, and Bruce Davison, fine as her able foil, perform most of the scenes. Their rapier wit, sometimes charged with anger and emotion, provokes laughter from a live audience. The book offers more about Hellman's relationships with Dashiell Hammett, Samuel Goldwyn, and Elizabeth Taylor; the Communist witch hunt; etc. In the play, the fascinating monster gains sympathy even before her paralyzed, blind finale. Prudes will dislike her freedom with obscenities; others can regard them as essential for an intimate portrait of the creator of The Little Foxes. Recommended warmly for general libraries and especially for drama collections.
