The Collected Plays of Neil Simon by
Call Number: 812 SIM
"If Broadway ever erects a monument to a patron saint of laughter, Neil Simon will have to be it." --Time Magazine This first volume of The Collected Plays of Neil Simon contains the triumphs that put Neil Simon's unique brand of comic genius on the American stage, and made him the most successful playwright of his generation. His mixture of verbal wit and beautifully crafted farce, ethnic humor and insight into universal foible, and above all compassion and understanding, make even his sharpest barbs touch the heart as well as the funny bone. These seven plays, beginning with his unforgettable debut, Come Blow Your Horn, make us laugh uproariously even as we indelibly identify with the objects of our laughter.
