“Kushner is an intense and poetical writer, a great shaper of words.? –Laurie Winer, LA Times
“Tony Kushner is drunk on ideas, on language, on the possibility of changing the world. His talent and his heart and his head are incendiary, combustible, explosive, heartbreakingly vital and on-target. This extraordinary new compendium contains enough haunting notions to keep anyone who cares sleepless for eternity. I want everyone to read him and listen to him and, yes goddamnit, think about what he says.? –Larry Kramer
“Terrific: his riff on the political and the personal, the theater of the ridiculous and the theater of the fabulous, synthesizes humor and commitment into wisdom.? – Publishers Weekly
“Tony Kushner's Slavs! just might be the best out-take of a Pulitzer Prize-winning play ever written.? –Greg Evans, Variety
“Bracing…original…rambunctiously funny…seriously moving…part buffoonish burlesque and part tragic satire…Mr. Kushner?s words dazzle, sting and prompt belly laughs.? –Vincent Canby, New York Times
