Über diesen Titel
Kenneth Koch's lively, original, and acclaimed book of nine plays--some surrealist, some data, all readable and funny--are now available in a paperback edition. Koch has received many honors for his work, including most recently the Bollingen Prize for his poetry.From Library Journal:
The title play in this collection, from a noted poet and avant-garde playwright who draws on opera, poetry, and various dramatic forms for his inspiration, is a wonderfully witty dialog between two elderly Chinese monks exploring the absurdity of our monetary system and the value of money. All nine of the pieces represent a different style of drama and subject, e.g., The Construction of Boston is a lyrical verse play that was made into an opera. Though some of these pieces have been published in literary magazines, one work is based on the author's own short stories (Hotel Lambosa, Coffee House, 1993), and a 1973 collection included the title play and two others found here. A rich, single-volume resource, this highly readable collection is recommended for modern literature collections in public and academic libraries.
