Hey folks... just wanted to let you know that an essay I wrote about August Wilson's 20th Century Cycle appears in this month's American Theatre and can be read online. I've long wanted to write about Wilson, and this piece only scratches the surface of everything there is to say about the man and his work, so hopefully this is the first of many posts you'll see here directing you to things I've written about him. Anyway, it's called "That August Wilson Feeling" and it's an attempt to reckon with what it is that Wilson does that no one else really seems to be able to do, and why I think he's probably the greatest American Playwright of the 20th Century. Check it out.
