    1. I love this book to pieces The General of Hot Desire is one of my favorite plays It s just so well thought out I would recommend this book of plays to fans of Shakespeare s sonnets It heightens the enjoyment

    3. Like an anthology of short stories, some plays in this collection were to my tastes than others I loved John Guare s The General of Hot Desire I also loved Tony Kushner s Terminating or Lass Meine Schmerzen Nicht Verloren Sein, or Ambivalence 140 by Marsha Norman and Hydraulics Phat Like Mean by Ntozake Shange didn t work for me on the page I read the collection for Wendy Wasserstein s Waiting for Philip Glass and I found it uninvolving Three questions about this play Are the seven plays design [...]

    4. Yey to Bogosian s Bitter Sauce, Wasserstein s Waiting for Philip Glass and Tony Kushner s Ambivalence Two thumbs down to John Guare s The General of Hot Desire Hit the snooze bar on that one.
