$38.00

American novelist and playwright Thornton Wilder was a triumph of literature in the mid-twentieth century. He produced dozens of plays, several novels, a film, and numerous essays. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice–first for Our Town in 1938 and second for The Skin of Our Teeth in 1942. He also won the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel after the international success of The Bridge of San Luis Rey in 1927. In this handsome volume, the Franklin Library presents his two most successful plays. Our Town’s three acts showcase Wilder’s keen awareness of theatrical production, even when only presented in print. Similarly, The Skin of Our Teeth breaks from many conventions of theater in ways that illuminate on the page. These Pulitzer-prize winning plays establish Wilder as one of the best authors of the century.
