Author Brittani Sonnenberg has received high acclaim globally, including The New York Times Books Editors' Choice, for her new novel Home Leave. In it she masterfully narrates the layers of stories, anxieties, and familiarities that seep in and out of the heads of women and their family members who embody this itinerant lifestyle.
I went to 42nd St. over the weekend to see Machinal, a play that was new to me. I was particularly excited that it was created by a woman playwright and journalist whose name I did not know, Sophie Treadwell. Finally a new female voice in theatre! Then, I realized the play was written and last performed on Broadway in 1928.
